      This is toooo exciting... I got my T-shirt and notes and stickers. I LOVE them--they're so uncold, uncomputer-y, un-massproduced-y... Can't wait! Can't wait!!!!

      What kind of douchery is this? "You need to use a real browser in order to use Diaspora!"
      Knock of the hipster bullshit and learn how to program for all browsers and this may be a success.

      @walter & sleepingbear: Come on! You don't have to be Mac or Linux users to enjoy modern browsers. They can run on Windows too.

      Here you go:…

      Is there a support contact? My email had an issue the other night on the server, and I don't know if I got my invite sent to me and then lost it as a result.

      No invite here either :( And it doesn't recognize my e-mail when I check to see if I am registered.

      Still no access to survey and - as a result - no t-shirt. I was emailing (to, filling reports, posting to forums. Is there anyone in the know how to get in touch with actual Diaspora team human being and let them know, that some backers still do not have their swag, and have no way to communicate that fact???

      I'm wondering why people who have been invited already have been given their own invites, when it hasn't even been opened up to all the contributers yet. I'm still waiting and I'm hearing about people who are already in being able to bring in other people. I suppose it makes sense that you'd need to have people start creating their personal networks, but are you really already getting overwhelmed by 6500+ initial invites? How are you ever going to catch up to Friendster at this rate? ;)

      @Matt I'm right there with you. When I saw the Ars Technica review, and noticed that he got in on an invite, I went back to check my mail, but invite.

      No survey and no invite as yet.

      I haven't got an invite yet either. That is all I wanted and feel a bit let down.

      @everyone: I think this should give you an answer for your invites worries:

      I have a kind of feeling that we are going to get our invites soon! :-)

      Hi everyone,
      The Diaspora guys have been working really hard and asked me to help them out with some issues that have arisen.
      All of the backer rewards have been sent out. If you have filled out a survey and not received yours, except to receive it soon. If you have not filled out a survey email
      I am currently going through the emails that are already there.
      I apologize for the delay.

    18. Dan Goldenberg on

      keep checking for more info about the invites

    19. Simon Kjellberg on

      I'm really disappointed that you let users who haven't even donated get an invite before us. I didn't even pledge to recieve any backers award, so i made a solely donation to the project. The least you could do is sending us all an invite, THEN let already signed up members invite their friends.

      Sorry, i'm a bit grumpy, trying to quit smoking...

      Is everyone else still missing their "alpha invites?" Has anyone gotten it in the last day or so? I haven't.

      Sort of shoddy PR going on here, but if it works out in the end I'll still be happy.
