I had hoped to have the prototype code for Plexus ready to release today. That isn’t going to happen. A month ago my Sydney flat very suddenly went up for sale, so I’ve spent the last four weeks finding a new home, packing, moving into the new home, and unpacking – in addition to doing paying work so that I could afford the move. Fortunately, my new home is much larger with a separate office space – where Plexus will now continue to be written. That task will be picked up either tomorrow or Friday. At this point I’d like to have prototype code ready for release around the 1st of October. Wish me luck.
We’re now seeing the emergence of other tools that begin to look a bit like Plexus: Seesmic Desktop 2 has a plugin architecture that allows you to aggregate many different social services. They ain’t doin it right (the services are still segregated) but it’s a start. Also, we can expect to see the very first code drop from Diaspora* sometime later today. I’ll be very excited to get that up and running, to see what can be made of it, and how Plexus can connect with it.
Thanks for your patience. More as it develops.
