, a San Francisco start-up that lets users drag-and-drop their videos for easy publishing on their Website, from just about any device, has raised venture capital from Silicon Valley firm August Capital. No surprise here. VideoEgg has been working closely with blogging software company Six Apart
, also backed by August. Don't know the exact amount. Release is here

VideoEgg/Typepad: Business Model
VideoEgg: Video Publishing Over EasyI was curious to test the new VideoEgg service provided free of charge for all Typepad users! (the video with the cats was the only one on my computer...) I found out about this service

How much capital, Matt? Dotcoms are cheap. How much did they pay and how much did they get? That's what an investigative reporter is supposed to tell us - not PR hype.
Hmmm, isn't this start-up also mentioned at about the same time at TechCrunch? Same about Tailrank... are they the same blog?
Hey Raul, not sure what you're implying. The public relations person for VideoEgg shipped me a press release at 4:22am this morning. I woke up, saw it, and posted it. Tailrank happened when I caught up with Scoble's blog, switched over to see whether Arrington had posted something on Tailrank (b/c he is the Web 2.0 guy, and I like linking to him on that stuff) and coincidentally, he had just posted something, and so I linked to it.
As for annoyed VC, first thing I did was to ask how much August invested because they didn't give an amount. Haven't heard back. Anyone else know?
I used to check-out only two business blogs: www.siliconbeat.com and blogs.siliconvalley.com/gmsv/, both offer excellent commentary and links on start-ups. Then last Sunday I read in the San Jose Mercury news about www.techcrunch.com and I checked it out. This last, a very thorough blog with lots of, until now, and to me, unknown start-ups. But then I started noticing, between www.siliconbeat.com and www.techcrunch.com, almost at the same time, first an entry about VideoEgg and then a note on Tailrank. I understand about press releases happening at the same time and going to different people, what I found curious is that commentaries appear at almost the same time as if one editor was doing what the other editor was doing. Obviously the news were as relevant to both blog editors unless they were the only news in their in-box.
