What Went Wrong With Diaspora?

The project isn't dead and it's not completely inconceivable it could have some success (Mozilla did after a very bumpy start) but clearly Diaspora hasn't achieved any of the things it set out to do.

This article covers what went wrong in detail. Both from a business and technical standpoint (P2P social networking is extraordinarily complex).

It also touches on the unhealthy myths that have built up in Silicon Valley about innovators and success. Fascinating stuff.

Do any of you have a Diaspora account and if so, do you use it?
