I'd say more a tool for organising, and sharing info but also with
social network features from it's elgg-ish beginnings. I've not used
tent-io, sorry, but looking at it's page this is "federated social
web" software.. So I'd say it's more like diaspora in not being more
evenly distributed like safebook or freenet, or I guess tent: It's
"second generation" so you can download a node (seed) and run it, but
it's also not supposed to be for sharing pretty pictures, profile
status updates and one liners.. I hope it gets more distributed as
time goes on..

It's for activism, organising, sharing knowledge, decision making and
it follows an ideal of decentralisation in society as well as in
computers, but also needs to be usable here and now by people who
depend on it for day to day organising..

Is there a demo of tent.io?

Thanks and all the best!

Ale
