The students Daniel Grippi, Maxwell Salzberg, Ilya Zhitomirskiy and Raphael Sofaer believe they can create an improved platform while maintaining privacy of users data. Watch the videos after the jump for their explanations and ideas.
The four students began the project will an aim to raise $10,000 before 1 June to help them create Diaspora during the holidays. They had reached this goal in less than two weeks and have now raised $100,000 through the Kickstarter funding website.
The intended platform will allow users to install their own ‘seed’ to share information, photos and videos and let them control and own all the data.
It sounds like a really great project and it will be interesting to see how the guys get on and what they’ve accomplished by the end of the summer, good luck.
