The 22 year old co-founder of social network Diaspora died over the weekend in San Francisco. It’s been reported that Ilya Zhitomirskiy may have committed suicide, but it will take a couple of weeks to confirm the cause of death according to the medical examiner’s office.


I feel deeply sad ! The World lost somebody very special..fighting for the freedom of us all ..

Even though i only had one Email conversation with them , to get them accepting BTC Donation, I felt that those ppl truly are fighting the same way we fight !

RIP
