Four Nerds & a Cry Against Facebook

From The New York Times:

"Four N.Y.U. students have decided people should be able to communicate online without surrendering their privacy to a big business."

"Diaspora* group was inspired after hearing a talk by Eben Moglen, a law professor at Columbia University, who described centralized social networks as 'spying for free'."

Read their story and how they raised money to set up Diaspora. Great OpenSource initiative.  http://nyti.ms/d01noz
