PODTECH RAISES $5.5 MILLION... CONGRATULATIONS JOHN!
I actually "met" John at AlwaysOn's community. He just closed with USVP and Venrock for $5.5 million which is great. SiliconBeat's Matt Marshall has a great description of John and some more info on the deal:
John Furrier is a bit of a hyperactive guy you will see at technology conferences around Silicon Valley. He bounds around with a microphone, taking audio recordings of people, with seeming limitless reserves of energy.
He launched his own company, called Podtech last year, around the time we first bumped into him. He posts his audio recordings to his Web site, where you can subscribe to them as podcasts. (full post)
