Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

I actually checked the other day.
They're making daily commits on github, but I still haven't got an invite.
Kinda sad.... I'd like to use something a little decentralized, open source, and where I could run my own server.

From what I remember diaspora was supposed to solve this. There would be sites that would pop up for free hosting or you could host your own (sorta like Wordpress).

They took a buttload of startup money. I hope they deliver something.
