Comparing WPMU with Diaspora

Has anyone worked with Diaspora, a open source social networking software platform?

How does WPMU compare to this? I am not a tech guy so I don't think I could manage creating my own 'pod' with Diaspora. At least with WPMU a not tech person can set up their social network.

Does anyone know if non tech people can set up Diaspora networks? Would there be ways to integrate both Diaspora and a WPMU network?
