Via Mark Essel:
The couchapp allows anyone to register and begin posting so try it out. There’s no federation yet, but additional couch databases can be continuously replicated. The distributed nature of the application spawns by setting up two way replication or synchronization between multiple nodes. This is one of the benefits of couchDB that makes it a great system for media sharing, and why I’ve decided to build on it.
☞ couchappspora has more or less nothing to do with Diaspora, but rather with ☞ status.net (ex Identica) compared with ☞ Twitter.com, aka federated vs centralized.
