I signed up for Ello (I'm http://ello.com/shelholtz). I had seen that Doug Ford, the Toronto mayoral candidate and brother of mayor Rob Ford, was there, and I mentioned it. I've been in a conversation with his account (which I doubt is actually him). Interesting experience so far, but is it really the Facebook alternative, or just one more place to go? After all, it has been 11 days since anybody I'm connected with on Diaspora has posted a thing.
