I'd only advice everyone to be careful is all. I don't know enough to call the whole project bad at the moment. It might even be an useful idea actually.
A feminist server…
Is a situated technology. She has a sense of context and considers herself to be part of an ecology of practices
Is run for and by a community that cares enough for her in order to make her exist
Builds on the materiality of #software, #hardware and the #bodies gathered around it
Opens herself to expose processes, tools, sources, habits, patterns
Does not strive for seamlessness. Talk of transparency too often signals that something is being made invisible
Avoids efficiency, ease-of-use, scalability and immediacy because they can be traps
Knows that #networking is actually an #awkward, promiscuous and parasitic practice
Is autonomous in the sense that she decides for her own dependencies
Radically questions the conditions for serving and service; experiments with changing client-server relations where she can
Treats network technology as part of a social reality
Wants networks to be mutable and read-write accessible
Does not confuse safety with security
Takes the risk of exposing her insecurity
Tries hard not to apologize when she is sometimes not available "

At https://www.bountysource.com/teams/diaspora there is a list of tasks to improve Diaspora. Tasks can be problems to solve or new features for the Diaspora.
You can donate some money to each problem based on your interest in improving Diaspora and programmers will work much faster on it.
The more people donate, the sooner we have a free and decentralized social network.
