Founders of Diaspora social network left in the hands of the community
The founders of social network Diaspora stop participating full time in the project. The idea was funded through Kickstarter two years ago by a group of students from the University of New York seeking to create an alternative network Facebook that was decentralized and concerned about privacy.
The group announced today that “Diaspora will give control to the community.” The co-founders, Maxwell Salzberg and Daniel Grippi, indicated that deliver a detailed report on how you spent the $200,000 in donations received, and indicated that henceforth work in Makr.io , a “meme generator” and his new venture .
“We will continue as an important part of the community as founders, but want to make sure to include all people who care about and want to see Diaspora succeed in the future,” he said. “This will not be an immediate change. Many details must be reviewed. It will be a gradual process to open more and more towards community governance over time. The goal is to make this a project completely driven and managed by the community. “
