Críticas:

Praise for "More Awesome Than Money"
"The courageous and ingenious actions of these four NYU students and the Diaspora hackers who come in their wake will make you want to stand up and cheer. In an age of self-absorbed tweeting and friending, these young people are our Rocky Balboas and Martin Luther Kings. This book is proof that we are no longer customers of social networks, but rather the merchandise. The advertisers are the true customers, and our private thoughts, desires, and needs are exploited, sold, and bartered among them like trading cards--long after we've hit the delete button. The tragic death of the talented programmer Ilya Zhitomirskiy stands as testimony to our own inertia about the commercial forces that seek to control us. I'm glad I met this young man on these pages, and I'm glad that the deeply talented Jim Dwyer--who also wrote the best book on 9-11 you'll ever read--brought him and his friends to us with such stirring clarity. It's a superb work, and a great read."
--James McBride, author of "The Good Lord Bird "and" The Color of Water," winner of the National Book Award
"Jim Dwyer's "More Awesome Than Money" is the story of four young men who dared to go up against the (new) machine--in this case, Facebook. By turns funny, poignant, scary, heartbreaking, and hopeful, "More Awesome Than Money" includes everything you need to know about how your personal information is being manipulated on the Internet, and what to do about it."
--Kevin Baker, author of "The Big Crowd"
"Books have been written about those who struck it rich in Silicon Valley. The four young idealists in this engrossing book did not. Their dreams of creating a more noble social network failed. Their names will not shadow Mark Zuckerberg. They may not be deemed 'cool.' In the deft hands of author Jim Dwyer, they are 'cool, ' and complicated. We follow them down the rabbit hole as they, like other forgotten names, travel from euphoria, to doubt, to dissension, to dissolution. Readers of this suspenseful narrative will not soon forget the mountaintop-to-valley drama they endured, the classic business and human mistakes they made, nor the nobility of what they hoped to do."
--Ken Auletta, author of ""Googled ""and""Greed and Glory on Wall Street""
"Failure is all to common for startups, but this is the best-told story of failure I've read. I was rooting for the improbable the whole way. It perfectly captures the texture of Silicon Valley's humanity and dreams better than any success story could."
--Kevin Kelly, founding editor""of""Wired, ""and author of""What Technology Wants""
"[A] worthy endeavor...Dwyer has painted a detailed portrait of the enormous difficulties facing female programmers and entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley."--"New York Times Book Review"
"[A] tumultuous story of four young men...offers a useful vantage point for assessing the strengths and weaknesses of Silicon Valley's culture . . ."--"Wall Street Journal"
"[A] lively account...[that] finds heroism and success, betrayal and even, ultimately, tragedy in the hurtling pursuit of a cause."--"Washington Post "
"Dwyer's account . . . is a thrilling read, astoundingly detailed and researched, alternately suspenseful and heartbreaking."--"Daily Beast"
"[A] lively account of Diaspora's creation as an alternative to the Silicon Valley megaliths. Like any account of the memorable early days of a revolution, Dwyer's reporting finds heroism and success, betrayal and even, ultimately, tragedy in the hurtling pursuit of a cause."--"Denver Post"
"A thoroughly compelling account recommended for those interested in general technology books and business narratives. This book is a welcome addition to the literature on start-ups, particularly for its focus on notions of privacy in the digital era and how entrepreneurs are working to address these critical needs."--"Library Journal"

Reseña del editor:

The David-versus-Goliath effort to build a revolutionary social network that would give us back control of our personal data
In June of 2010, four nerdy NYU undergrads moved to Silicon Valley to save the world from Facebook. Their idea was simple to build a social network that would allow users to control the information they shared about themselves instead of surrendering it to big business. Their project was called Diaspora, and just weeks after launching it on Kickstarter, the idealistic twenty-year-olds had raised $200,000 from donors around the world. Profiled in the New York Times, wooed by venture capitalists, and cheered on by the elite of the digital community, they were poised to revolutionize the Internet and remap the lines of power in our digital society until things fell apart, with tragic results.
The story of Diaspora reaches far beyond Silicon Valley to today s urgent debates over the future of the Internet. In this heartbreaking yet hopeful account, drawn from extensive interviews with the Diaspora Four and other key figures, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Jim Dwyer tells a riveting tale of four ambitious and naive young men who dared to challenge the status quo."
