Folks, here’s a reminder for those of you subscribing to VentureBeat via RSS. If you’ve been missing some content, here’s why:
VentureBeat has two feeds.
1) The first carries the main central column, plus contributors — and you can subscribe via the button at the top of the homepage.
2) The second carries items from the “News Wire,” which is our homepage left-hand column, for quick daily news hits. You can subscribe via the button at the bottom of that column.
FYI, here’s a list of some recent pieces on the News Wire: You’ll find it’s the most comprehensive listing of deals in Silicon Valley around:
–Ron Conway’s latest investment, in personal finance management company, Mint Software.
— In-Q-Tel selects Steve Bowsher (pictured here) to run venture capital investments in Menlo Park. In-Q-Tel is the venture arm of the CIA and other intelligence communities. Also, the former chief executive of In-Q-Tel, Gilman Louie, appears to have made his first investment since leaving.
—TalkPlus raises $5.5M for new mobile phone service
—Luz II raises cash for large scale solar power generation in Calif.
–VC fundraising on track to be biggest year.
–Reality game maker Mind Candy gets $7M from Accel.
–KnowNow gets $13M more for RSS services.
–Miasole, super thin solar cell company, raises $35M more.
–EBuddy raises $5M euros.
–Adobe raises $100M venture arm.
Those reading via the homepage don’t need to worry about this.
We felt a clarification was in order, though, having heard back from several people asking why we hadn’t covered such-and-such, when in fact we had. Also, over the next few weeks we’ll be making this clearer on the site, and will also unify everything under a single search bar from the homepage (right now, each section has a separate search).
As always, feedback welcome.
