Joshua Schachter announced del.icio.us just closed a funding round led by Union Square Ventures. Amazon.com, Marc Andreessen, BV Capital, Esther Dyson, Seth Goldstein, Josh Koppelman, Howard Morgan, Tim O’Reilly, and Bob Young round out the investment group.
Interesting mix of investors. Amazon has now funded two tagging companies in 43 Things and del.icio.us. Esther is involved with a lot of hot new media companies. Bob Young is the founder of Red Hat. Union Square has a few investments in targeted marketing companies that will help del.icio.us maximize their advertising revenue.
