yeah because, you know, it's not already a huge market with billions of dollars for the taking or anything like that. dumbass.
there's hundreds of sites, apps, and add-ons all for the reason of connecting one's social networks for a variety of legitimate reasons.
but, of course it's all ridiculous and unnecessary because you personally don't have a need for it.

Yeah, I've seen it, it's a lot of meh. Not worth the 200,000 that was donated to them.

It doesn't help much that diaspora.com wasn't available.

That's not true. I click your link and the first thing it asks me to do is install some google chrome shit to view the page. You can't even see their page without installing it. (assuming you haven't already installed whatever this IE add-on is)

You're a racist.

katg.com/forums =/= a social network

I agree that facebook and myspace should not be combined. Worlds collide. Not good for anybody.

Also, when did Twitter become cool? It was faggoty 2 years ago, and it hasn't changed.

I don't get it, was this a response to me? If so, I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

The book's about two brothers who grew up in the 60's and 70's and as a result ended up not understanding, or even hating the whole "peace and groovy shit man" era. I grew up in the 90's and 00's, and hate social networking and most things about the internet, so I feel like I relate.

Yea it was a response to you. I re-read my post and I'm not sure I get it either.

I think what it boils down to is, I'm a dueche.

Apperently a racist dueche to boot.

I grew up in the 90s and 00s as well, but I like internet porn. I think it's more about social networking being shit and not because there's anything wrong with us.

Oh sorry, I didn't realize they were using Chrome Frame. That's not a Diaspora limitation it's a browser limitation on your part.

See IE can't understand HTML5 or CSS3, it doesn't follow the HTML4 or CSS2 spec very well either. it's a really really shit browser.

easily 60-90%+ of web content today that you're viewing doesn't function correctly or is using IE specific hacks to try and make any given site barely function "ok" in IE.

even the katg forums - if you view source - you'll see a bunch of "IF IE" specific hacks so the forums don't fuck up in IE.

In addition IE is incredibly insecure. Like visit a webpage and have it download a virus, run it, taking control of your system without even a warning or anything insecure. Microsoft typically leaves hundreds of well known vulnerabilities like this (zero-day remote code execution) that are actively exploited all over the internet wide open with no intention of fixing them. I believe because they generate profit from bundling crap Norton with new computers, and if they made secure products the entire anti-virus anti-spyware industry would collapse.

Internet Explorer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In general IE is about 5-10 years behind other browsers. It's a shit browser and extremely slow. Depending on what stats you look at it doesn't even have close to majority market share in many sectors anymore despite being pre-installed and integrated with Windows.

You're a fool if you keep using it when there's Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera; all of which are super fast, care about patching any security vulnerabilities that are found soon after they're found(ie: safe and stable), and can display a web page written in the last 5 years without almost dying.

a significant amount of IE users today are just big corporations who's sysadmins can't bother to upgrade everyone to a better browser, and old ladies who don't know any better. Who many developers don't care about or aren't worth the time catering to anymore.

If you're too stupid, Diaspora and many other sites use this thing called Google Chrome Frame, which is a plugin - by Google - that "activates" Google Chrome's core rendering engine inside Internet Explorer. It saves developers like me many hours of headaches trying to make alternate versions of their sites and using hacks and IE specific workarounds to gracefully degrade as each version of IE fucks up and is limited in completely different ways.

Once installed, websites that choose to activate Chrome Frame will be able to use the latest web technology, and will be 30000% more secure.

You can get those same security and feature benefits by just using Google Chrome, which I highly recommended - as someone that actually understands the ones and zeros.

Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux

The whole point of Diaspora is letting you define the boundaries of your social experience. It's the anti-collision option. They're trying to remove any boundaries in defining your social experience, but it's still your definition.

The end goal is that you'd be able to interact with people who use Twitter, Myspace, Facebook, etc. without actually needing an account on any of those networks. Just like how today you can email someone on Yahoo, Hotmail, or Gmail without having an account at any of those providers.
