Summary
"Four NYU undergrads wanted to build a social network that would allow users to control what they shared about themselves. They were hoping to raise 10k in 30 days and their project was called Diaspora. Their 2010 Kickstarter campaign ended the first day with three backers. They raised 20 times their goal and had support from around the world. But as the months wore on and the money wore out, they couldn't get there--coding failures, bad business decisions, over-reach and under-organization, and the inevitable conflicts of personality and goals."--
Summary
The co-author of the National Book Award finalist 102 Minutes traces the efforts of four NYU undergrads to create a privacy-protecting social networking site, an effort that culminated in interpersonal disputes and the suicide of one of the four founders
