Delicious Founder Raises Funding For Tasty Labs’ Take On Social Software

November 24th, 2010 11:34 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

Earlier this month, we noted that Delicious founder Joshua Schachter, together with Nick Nguyen (the former director of add-ons for Mozilla) and Paul Rademacher, the man known for creating “the first true Web 2.0 applicationâ€, was working on a new stealthy startup called Tasty Labs.

This morning, Union Square Ventures partner Albert Wenger revealed on his blog that the firm has invested in Tasty Labs together with Andreessen Horowitz and unnamed angel investors.

It’s unclear how much Tasty Labs raised, but we’re trying to find out. Oh, and according to this (new?) line on their intensely sparse website, they’re going to try and put “the useful back into social software” and looking for software engineers and UX designers to help them accomplish that goal.

Union Square Ventures of course knows Schachter well – they invested in Delicious back in 2005 (the company was acquired by Yahoo the same year). Wenger knows Schachter even better, he served as Delicious’ president prior to joining the venture capital firm.
