the FSF?   i think it's just  some FooCorp proposal and  i'd be really
surprised and kind of deluded  about FSF's myopia in supporting such a
naive  project plan.

besides the objection on PHP language, partially true, the fundamental
limitations  of  daisycha.in's design  are:  "yet another  centralised
architecture"  and "yet another  browser based  communication system",
tainting respectively the scalability and efficiency of the project.

is the Internet a place for  the collective loss of memory (likely so)
or  are  we  voluntarily  ignoring  projects like:

The   Circle  (since   2004!)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Circle
Syndie (since approx. 3 years ago) http://syndie.i2p2.de/
CSpace framework (since approx. 2 year ago) http://cspace.in/

I'd exclude the case of FSF's incompetence on the issue.

sorry to sound harsh, but  this is no training ground, considering the
huge  role social networks  are having  in critical  media situations,
unless we are  just building an entertainment platform  for Iphone and
Martini people, but then we have plenty already.
