Steve Shapiro, center, who graduated in 2004 with a degree in information technology, developed the idea for Digsby in a graduate entrepreneurship class at RIT in the fall of 2005. He launched the company in March 2006 and all seven employees are RIT graduates. The company was acquired by Tagged, the leading social network for meeting new people, and all employees moved to San Francisco.
