The buddycloud node.js based server is now out. It's our work towards
creating an open social network based on the XMPP protocol. The server
is an XMPP component and is designed to plug into any existing XMPP
server. We have used pub-sub for the design and XMPP's native federation
to help buddycloud servers find eachother.
All the protocol bits are published: http://open.buddycloud.com with the
idea that we iron out the kinks and then XEP-ify things.
MattJ is also working on a channel server that plugs into Prosody and
we're excited to see how the two codebases interact.
If you want to have a play, the code is:

technology choices is at
I am hoping to see lots of you at FOSDEM next weekend where there will
be a bunch of us hacking on buddycloud related bits.
