edgeio secures $5m series A financing

I may be biased but I think edgeio is one day going to be a great company 🙂 Well today we made a few announcements and several people have picked up on them. Firstly, we have secured a Series A round of financing, led by Intel Capital. Secondly we have launched a Chinese language web site at mulu100.com. Thirdly we have completed the filing of our patent application, originally initiated in October 2005. There is a lot more coming from us, and some of it quite soon. But this is a great day for me and my partners, Mike Arrington,

New edgeio features to launch tonight

I am pleased to report that edgeio is going to launch some new features tonight. I have posted details on the edgeio corporate blog. The features will go live some time after midnight Pacific time.

It’s free and it allows you to put free listings into edgeio and all of the sites that edgeio syndicates its listings to

Podtech secures $5.5m in Series A Funding

John Furrier is a genuine entreprenuer. After closing down Labrador and joining me at RealNames in 1999 he branched out on his own. He survived the nuclear winter in Silicon Valley, increased his family to 4 children, and embarked – a little more than a year ago – on PodTech. It is now a formidable PodCast network.

PodTech also launched a new site to cooincide with the announcement. Today is a good day.

edgeio launched at midnight tonight!

I just posted on the edgeio blog that the edgeio site has gone live tonight at midnight, Pacific time. Overall this is both scary and exhilarating. After 18 months since conceiving the idea, teaming up with Mike , Matt and Vidar, then involving Fred in front end design, we have opened the doors. Om Malik was the first to post about it. The last 2 weeks we had about 5000 people using edgeio with a password. As a result we have about 2000 listings from more than 150 cities. We made a conscious choice to NOT pre-populate edgeio with scraped

Moving On!

We’re moving house over the next two weeks. We sold our Aptos house and moved out on Friday. We are going to a new home in Hamilton Avenue [close to University Avenue] in Palo Alto, but can only move in on 18 September. Meanwhile we are renting a beach house in Rio Del Mar. Life is quite good I think BUT … this server will be down a lot until 22 September when my new DSL activates. I run it from home and the transition will not be smooth. Sorry!
