Today we received the very sad news from the tech community that Ilya Zhitomirskiy one of the co-founders of the Diaspora project passed away last night at the age 22. We’ve never had the chance to meet him or any of the diaspora team yet, but always admired their vision of open web and a federated social network and the great work that they have accomplished so far.
As the Anahita team we would like to offer our deepest condolences to Ilya’s family, friends, and the entire Diaspora team. This must be a very difficult time for them and only time can heal such wounds.
Ilya’s vision for a more open and federated web, especially in the social networking universe, will be celebrated and continued by many open source projects around the globe.
