Account backup and restore for diaspora* | Indiegogo
diaspora* is an awesome communication platform and tbh a real alternative to any of the social networks out there. Maybe not for "friends and family" communication, but communicating with interesting people especially in the #opensource and #freesoftware interest groups.
There is one huge flaw though. The network cannot protect users from bad podmins. You join a pod, your identity is there and cannot leave. Content ownership really isn't, unless you run your own pod. You can't move out without recreating all your social relationships - and you still lose any public content you've pushed out. Even worse, a pod that suddenly disappears will suck everything you have and take it down. Bad podmins are out there. The network has lost thousands and thousands of users due to bad podmins.
This is why last autumn I wrote down the initial idea of an automated identity backup system that would allow users to restore on another pod in the case of a bad podmin. It's not the content ownership of running your own pod, but at least your content and identity gains some resilience to bad events and censorship.
I had the pleasure of meeting [Senya](/people/a73cb4801200013290ad00163eb64c50) in Helsinki a few months ago. It was at that time the idea of making this critical feature work via crowd funding came up. We discussed for hours and I really believe he can pull this off.
There are over ~20K active users currently using diaspora* - at least. 117 have backed this campaign.
Take steps to ensure your diaspora* identity has a future and back the campaign now!
12 days left and the campaign is at 65% - let's push it a bit!

Linux Foundation quietly drops community representation
The Linux Foundation is an industry organisation dedicated to "promoting, protecting and standardising Linux and open source software". The majority of its board is chosen by the member companies - 10 by platinum members (platinum membership costs $500,000 a year), 3 by gold members (gold membership costs $100,000 a year) and 1 by silver members (silver membership costs between $5,000 and $20,000 a year, depending on company size). Up until recently individual members ($99 a year) could also elect two board members, allowing for community perspectives to be represented at the board level.
As of last Friday, this is no longer true. The by-laws were amended to drop the clause that permitted individual members to elect any directors. Section 3.3(a) now says that no affiliate members may be involved in the election of directors, and section 5.3(d) still permits at-large directors but does not require them. The old version of the bylaws are here - the only non-whitespace differences are in sections 3.3(a) and 5.3(d).
