Follow Up on Facebook Privacy

It seems I might have been onto something with my post on Facebook, Microformats, and Open Source. Here's a great startup called Diasporia.  I've donated to them.  I did think the "Connect with Facebook" on the payment page was particularly ironic.  Either way, I gave them a few bucks and you should too. The uproar is growing on the Facebook privacy fiasco. Here are some Google engineers that are popping smoke on FB. RWW is reporting that Leo Laporte, Peter Rojas, and others are leaving FB. Finally, there's this post from Jason Calacanis.
