If you were the kind of person who might like to see how Diaspora is coming along, and why wouldn’t you, then you can do so at my Diaspora-powered site, Radicle.me. Go nuts. Bug reports should go to Diaspora’s github account.
Why Radicle? From Wikipedia:
In botany, the radicle is the first part of a seedling (a growing plant embryo) to emerge from the seed during the process of germination.
