[Debian-NYC] Fwd: NYLUG Presents: 2/16 @ 6:30PM Daniel Grippi and Raphael Sofaer on Diaspora: Federated social networking

While not directly Debian related, I figured that since these guys are
trying to launch the anti-facebook, Free Software, federated, social
networking stack, it might be of interest to the group. (IE: this
project was launched in reaction to the nefarious privacy changes
Facebook rolled out last year, and I think once it matures a bit,
packaging it for future inclusion in Debian seems to make sense. I for
one will certainly be asking them if they have any current packaging
strategies or future plans).

Please note that if you are interested you should RSVP early, as we
expect this to be a very popular talk. (Conversely if  you do register
and can't go, please try to unRSVP)
