    As far as I can tell, this is essentially a specific webserver build sitting inside a VM. Kind of like a slightly more user-friendly Diaspora in practice. It doesn't appear to do anything in solving the fundamental human-factors issue with social networks:
    1) An end user voluntarily making data either publicly visible, or authorising COMPANY X to see that data. Where that data is stored or what platform you use to give them access is basically irrelevant once that data has been transferred once.
    2) The mindset that "if you're not on platform Y, you're 'missing out'". This results in such sillyness as claiming Asshole Z being banned from Twatter is censorship, ignoring that Asshole Z is still free to bleat nonsense over the internet everywhere else, including from their own hosted services.
