anti-facebook raising money, gaining momentum

Everytime Facebook makes a change to their product, thousands of people who can't handle change get themselves in a tizzy with "bring back the old Facebook" groups and petitions.

This time, it's a little different. Some prominent people are registering their discontent with the social media megalopolis, and have suggested that someone create an open source version of Facebook.

A group of NYU students have taken Wired Magazine's request seriously, and have already raised $115K in crowdsourced funding to pay their way to the build. They say they're going to start as soon as they graduate, this summer. (Now that's the way into social media entrepreneurship.)
