George Hunt hosts a 3 part series of videos about the late diaspora co-founder Ilya Zhitomirskiy with the looming topic of, was he murdered? Ilya was a 22 year old website developer who was working on a project nicknamed the Facebook Killer because it was such a good model that it could have rid the world of Facebook users. That being said, with all the hype in the social media world and big bank investors and large amounts of grant funding being tossed into the world of social media, would they just allow a couple of young college students walk in and destroy their plans to control the world through social media.
President Obama’s visit to the Silicon Valley on February 17th, 2011 brought billions of dollars in grants to the world of social media, the grant would invest in the advancement of a technological control in social media. At this same time a group of young college students were also creating a site dubbed the Facebook Killer. Diaspora co-founder Ilya Zhitomirskiy was found dead on November 12, 2011, maybe it’s just a coincidence but it seems all too similar and George Hunt investigates this not as suicide but as if Ilya was murdered.
