Gnip is Alive

We just posted a blog on Gnip, one of our latest investments over at the Foundry Group site.

I’m really excited about this company.  As a heavy web applications user, my marginal enjoyment of these applications has begun to decrease as scalability issues have exponentially increased.  Take a read, it’s really a great idea and we are fortunate to be part of their venture syndicate.

  • Saw them demo at New Tech Meetup last night. Pretty cool, but it wasn't entirely clear to me who their customers are. Are they a kind of Akamai for web APIs?

  • We actually call it “glue” and it is one of our key investment areas. Check out our blog on glue: http://www.foundrygroup.com/blog/archives/2008/03

  • Interesting investment… can we consider Gnip is infrastructure? if so, is this one of you key investment fields right now?
