Diaspora Co-Founder Dies At 21



Diaspora Co-Founder Ilya Zhitomirskiy, far left in the image above, has died.

This story is developing as there is no news on the cause of death.

Diaspora, which mean “the movement, migration, or scattering of people away from an established or ancestral homeland” or “people dispersed by whatever cause to more than one location,” made news last year when four NYU students decided to take on Facebook by offering a more private social networking experience. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg even donated to their cause.

We will update this story as more is learned.
