Feedster, the San Francisco search engine for blogs and RSS feeds, said today (see release) that it has closed its first round of venture financing (which we hinted at here a while back). No figure attached to the new announcement, but the deal was led by Selby Venture Partners, a Menlo Park firm located away from the main drag on Sand Hill Road, and not the biggest name in Silicon Valley. We visited with managing director Bob Marshall several months ago, and seems the firm hasn’t invested much in the Internet media space. Though it’s not entirely green either, having invested in music recommendation company, Savage Beast.
