Last night, Brightkite announced that it has merged with Limbo. The resulting company, which will be called Brightkite, recently closed a $9 million financing. I’m psyched for Martin, Brady, and the Brightkite crew as this merger positions them really strongly for their next phase of growth.
Brightkite was a member of the TechStars 2007 class. They’ve crafted an outstanding mobile social networking app that really started to take off after the release of their excellent iPhone app. It’s become one of my signaling devices for where I am in the world – if you want to keep track of me friend and follow me on Brightkite.
Congrats guys – I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings!
Off for a run on the Embarcadero (without my iPhone this time.)
