founders of #makr #startup make today from #diaspora #socialmedia tool next #facebook a community project #edtech20 #pln


 Diaspora the newest social media startup open source social network attempts to combine all of our social networking information into one powerful, secure and private (public only if you want) application. If you like diaspora you must read in my previous post here   http://bitly.com/collaborationincop2smile about my favorite top 10 curation tools to build a PLN . Last year I was verry upset when Diaspora Co-Founder Ilya Zhitomirskiy Dies at 22 and in this way one of the Diaspora Brains died , but other founders of this startup continue the adventure .
Features :
Choice
Diaspora lets you sort your connections into groups called aspects. Unique to Diaspora, aspects ensure that your photos, stories and jokes are shared only with the people you intend.
Ownership
You own your pictures, and you shouldn’t have to give that up just to share them. You maintain ownership of everything you share on Diaspora, giving you full control over how it's distributed.
Simplicity
Diaspora makes sharing clean and easy – and this goes for privacy too. Inherently private, Diaspora doesn’t make you wade through pages of settings and options just to keep your profile secure.
 Now I invite all of you to read last news about Diaspora received today on my email from founder Daniel Grippi :
,, Today, we are giving control of Diaspora to the community.As a Free Software social project, we have an obligation to take this project further, for the good of the community that revolves around it. Putting the decisions for the project’s future in the hands of the community is one of the highest benefits of any FOSS project, and we’d like to bring this benefit to our users and developers. We still will remain as an important part this community as the founders, but we want to make sure we are including all of the people who care about Diaspora and want to see it succeed well into the future.
If you look around, you’ll see that we’ve made an effort to open up to the community more to help better serve it. We’ve opened up our Pivotal Tracker for community developers help join in (You can sign up here), we’ve launched a tool that deploys one-click installations to the Heroku app hosting service, and we’ve updated joindiaspora.com to be more community-centric, showcasing other pods a user can join.
This will not be an immediate shift over. Many details still need to be stepped through. It is going to be a gradual process to open up more and more to community governance over time. The goal is to make this an entirely community-driven and community-run project. Sean Tilley, our Open Source Community Manager will spearhead community efforts to see that this happens. Stay tuned to our blog for a message from Sean concerning next steps, as well as ways to get involved in helping with the transition process.
This is a new opportunity for Diaspora to grow further than ever before. We can’t wait to see what we can do together.
Daniel and Maxwell

Makr Mission
The word “meme” doesn’t mean what it used to, but it’s really nothing more than an idea that spreads—no “Advice Dog,” “College Freshman,” or “Condescending Wonka” in that definition.
Makr want to give memes back to the Internet community—they are a way to communicate, to express ideas. Anyone should be able to make anything into a meme, without ugly meme generators or predetermined characters. Makr.io makes it easy to be a part of creating something on the web, and most importantly, Makr.io makes it easy to laugh and make others laugh. If there’s something better than laughing with your friends (or by yourself), we haven’t found it.
What can you do on Makr?
On Makr, you can “meme-ify” anything—add to the growing web of Internet culture, laugh, and share with friends. You can collaborate and share ideas with other Makrs in topics that you are interested in, and share your creations anywhere on the web. Explore posts, people, and topics to find the conversations and communities that fit you!
How do you Remix?
A remix on Makr.io is simply a riff on someone else’s post. You can remix any post on the site—just hover over a post and click the remix icon. You can change the post’s image, text or both. You can also remix from anywhere on the web—just install the Remix button to your bookmarks bar.
What is a Topic on Makr?
Topics are spaces where you can collaborate with people who share the same interests as you. You can start a topic thread yourself, or you can explore and join an existing one created by someone in the Makr community. You can be a contributor to a topic by sharing your own post or remixing another post in that topic.
How do you create a Topic?
You can create a topic by making a new post and adding a tag about the topic you want to create. From there, you can keep adding more posts to that topic.
Do you think these recent graduates have a chance competing with some of the biggest social networking platforms such as Facebook or Google Plus ? Please let me know what you think and add  comments  below about Diaspora and Makr.io .
