    "Four NYU undergrads wanted to build a social network that would allow users to control what they shared about themselves. They were hoping to raised 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.

Max dreamed of being a CEO.Ilya was the idealist. Dan coded like a pro, and Rafi tried to keep them all on track.

With the cooperation of the surviving partners, New York Times bestselling author Jim Dwyer tells a riveting story of four ambitious and naive young men who tried to re-bottle the genie of personal privacy-and paid the ultimate price"--
