Who’s Working on Distributed Social?


Some college kids out of NYU who rallied a movement for a more privacy-aware, federated social web to the tune of more than $200,000 in Kickstarter funding. Code drop is expected on September 15.


One Social Web

Was doing Open Social until the project was scuttled by Vodafone in July.

Appleseed Social Network

I’ve just heard of this one but from what I gather it is a Mozillia drumbeat project started by contributor Michael Chisari. Sounds promising, but I don’t know how much work is being done on it now.

Does anyone else out there know of any other projects moving us toward the social web we need?

  1. I’ve had three releases this summer, and I’m working on the fourth (0.7.6), which will be out soon.

    We have a roadmap, UI mockups, and other documentation in SVN

    Project already had a mail system, photos, remote logins, privacy controls, journals, and a whole host of other features, and this summer, we’ve added an MVC framework, internationalisation, theming, and a whole lot more.

    Things are moving very quickly, now.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog site is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thank you!
