Diaspora*, the crowdfunded social network, is making the transition to a ‘community-led’ project, it announced today.
The team recently released an image remixing and sharing tool, Makr.io. The following is the released quote from the team, concerning the transition:
“We are proud of what Diaspora has become. 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.”
