If you are a diasp.org user you have seen dia.so URL’s and can shorten any URL with it inside Diaspora.
I have offered others to use it, but no one has bitten, that’s ok! I did just launch a profile shortner on the main dia.so page. Idea is to simplify connecting with others via a central hub. Since it sets a cookie with your pod name it would be a nice central hub for things, all things! If you have created something or know someone that has that “needs to know” the users pod to work properly please suggest it!
