Congratulations are in order to our friends at Techdirt, who recently raised a round of funding to expand their Insight Community and welcomed Mark Fletcher, founder of Onelist and Bloglines, to their board of directors.
One of the remarkable things about Techdirt is how the Internet has allowed a small number of (exceptionally smart) people to do a lot with a little. According to the article I linked to above, they raised $600,000. That seems like a remarkably small number for a web site that gets more traffic than your average mid-sized newspaper’s website. And of course, Techdirt reached its current level of prominence before raising this round of financing, so I imagine this will allow them to be even more successful in the months ahead.
