Today I read that the co-founder of Diaspora, Ilya Zhitomirskiy was found dead of a probably suicide. Oh really? Why would he commit suicide?
I see 3 possibilities:
1) He legitimately committed suicide for some reason.
2) He was suicided (killed off by a rival and made to look like a suicide)
3) This one may be odd or even offensive so I apologize in advance, just bear with me: this is an elaborate publicity stunt to get Diaspora more into the national/international limelight.
Sure, the latter is unlikely but we have to consider all possibilities, right? (well, these three aren't ALL possibilities but the main ones that stand out in my mind.)
Now, I know that young adults and teens sadly kill themselves all the time. But I, being a conspiracy theorist, would like to know more about Zhitomirsky.
I am positive that I am being monitored very closely for the things I write on this forum sometimes. I have had men (with guns on their hips) come banging on the door very late at night. Who are these goons? I have no idea. I've had guys follow me and try to run me off the road. My internet connection keeps shutting off as I'm writing this so hopefully it will be up for a minute so I can actually post this! People want to laugh at conspiracy theorists and call them crazy, but you're not paranoid if they're really following you!
Anyone have any other ideas? Please comment below on your ideas. (I doubt I'm the only one who thought this when first hearing about his death.)
My condolences to family and friends.
According to one report, Ilya's mother had not heard from him for 3 days and a friend of his broke down his door to find him dead. It is unclear if he was dead for 3 days, 2 or less. Also:
Technology news site Oobly.com wrote that it was deleting a report which said Zhitomirskiy had been planning to end his life and had left a detailed suicide note.And to throw in another one of my opinions: I don't think diaspora "failed"... it didn't really even start. Speaking in film terminology, I'd say they were in production mode (sent out invites to the Beta version so new users can test for bugs and flaws of any kinds)... they've not yet reached "post-production"... ie. a super-polished version. The "alpha" version. Journalists and bloggers are writing that they somehow failed financially and they might be why he killed himself. I actually think they did a great job for a startup. They were mentioned on many well known news blogs and websites. There are thousands of anxious followers on their Facebook page. How exactly is this a "fail"??? Zhitomirskiy even said, “There’s something deeper than making money off stuff. Being a part of creating stuff for the universe is awesome!"
