“A warrior, on the other hand, is a hunter. He calculates everything. That’s control. But once his calculations are over he acts. He lets go. That’s abandon.”

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.
