My inbox and Twitter streams just lit up with tweets and e-mails about
the Diaspora project. They were covered about a week ago on RWW:

Articles in the NYT tend to have this effect:

It would be healthy for the web community at large to have a discussion
with these guys. What they're doing has semantic web and RDFa written
all over it.

Machines are going to need to communicate with each Diaspora seed
server? Either you create an API to do it, or you publish the data via
semantic markup (or both).

I'll send a ping out - see if they're interested in talking with this
community.
