There are a lot of small projects like this getting started, with  
folks attempting to take a new approach to social networking. It will  
be interesting to see which ones gain traction. A lot of small, under- 
used projects won't be very helpful. Those that succeed will need to  
have a similar level of ubiquity as Facebook, or have a well-developed  
API for interoperability between the smaller projects.

technical aside: A detriment of this project might be that it's being  
written in PHP, which is not as secure or robust as some of the other  
options. I understand the desire for portability, but there are  
several other languages that would be more apropos.
