“I make but a simple statement of fact when I say that for years I was like on bound hand and foot to a log racing madly on a torrent, saved miraculously time after time from dashing to death against the many boulders projecting out of the swirling water on every side by just a narrow margin and in the nick of time, turning and twisting this way and that, as if guided by a marvelously quick and dexterous hand infallibly correct in its movement … At times I felt Instinctively that a life and death struggle was going on inside me in which I, the owner of the body, was entirely powerless to take part, forced to lie quietly and watch as a spectator the weird drama unfolded in my own flesh.”

Diaspora and Breathing

n

Like many others I was happy when Diaspora launched but almost from the beginning doubtful about their ability to deliver. I didn’t back the project. I did two things to show my support:

  1. I wrote and dedicated a post to them in an attempt to outline a design problem they, as engineers, were bound (and did) crash into.
  2. I wrote them and offered to support their effort by teaching them to breathe (I did ask for one thing in return – that they publicly share any observations about the effects of this on their work and lives).

I have only occassionaly visited their work only to find my suspicions confirmed. I didn’t know though that (a) they completely aborted the project and that (b) one of their founders committed suicide.
