Detailed Description

Update

Diaspora is a project begun by four students at NYU's Courant Institute. They proposed to build an open-source, distributed social network as an alternative to companies such as Facebook.

The team decided to raise $10,000 using Kickstarter by June 1. In light of Facebook's recent moves concerning privacy, the team has received far more support than expected. With news coverage by Fox on May 11th and a writeup from the New York Times on May 12th exposure took off. The company had raised more than $178,000 by May 21st.
