The first diaspora* seeds were planted long ago in the land where milky haze embraces the towering peaks of mighty mountains. The dandelion's seeds flew round like parachutes in the wind, growing more network pods, spreading the idea of a federated social network far and wide. Today diaspora* network is a community project with a stable userbase and a defined development cycle. Many people have joined the diaspora clan in search of a macroblogging social platform that returns control to the users. At first glance diaspora* may seem quiet. But a curious eye and an open mind will find knowledge and kindred spirits here. Join diaspora today!
