I popped in on the site to see if they had opened the code.The project link at joindiaspora.com now takes you to zombo.com. I hope it’s a joke and not a vaporware indicator. I wonder what the hell they were on at Burning Man? Looks like Maxwell is taking credit for it, github is up.

A buddy asked me this week about deploying a Rails app on Linux and my response was close to “life is like a box of chocolates…” Losing my Linux foo seems to be a side effect of becoming Windows stupid because of .NET and MSSQL at work. I try not to be a hater, but [...]
