I’m a Diaspora backer
I think this Kickstarter - Diaspora deal is fascinating. 4 kids end up with 6 figures of funding. Clearly there is a growing desire to create a simple, elegant social network with manageable privacy settings. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Yes, I realize that Facebook isn’t going anywhere, and they will probably have all of their privacy issues worked out by the end of the year. These kids still deserve a chance.
Also, I’m a sucker for startup tshirts.
