Diaspora Turns Itself Over to the Community: Will Risk Kill the Social Experiment?

DisaporaProject.org describes itself as: "Diaspora* is a fun and creative community that puts you in control." The website's homepage has the slogan "Social freedom," which partly explains its risk to allow the community to takeover the development of the social networks' platform. Community members will add code, features, moderate, etc...
That’s the idea behind handing the keys over to the community itself. In an email to users, Danel Grippi and Maxwell Salzberg wrote: “As a Free Software social project, we have an obligation to take this project further, for the good of the community that revolves around it. Putting the decisions for the project’s future in the hands of the community is one of the highest benefits of any FOSS project, and we’d like to bring this benefit to our users and developers.”
