Grippi developed Diaspora with co-founders Daniel Grippi, Maxwell Salzberg, and Ilya Zhitomirskiy. All students at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. The aim of Diaspora is to be a decentralized social network. Unlike Facebook, users set up their own server or "seed" to host content and seeds can then interact to share social data. The group received donations of over $200,000 via Kickstarter, an online threshold pledge funding system for funding creative projects. One of the contributers was from Mark Zuckerberg founder and CEO of Facebook.
