From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2010-05-13:
"In our real lives, we talk to each other. We don't need to hand our messages to a hub. What Facebook gives you as a user isn't all that hard to do. All the little games, the little walls, the little chat, aren't really rare things. The technology already exists." -- Raphael Sofaer, one of four geeky college students who are building an open source alternative to Facebook called Diaspora.
