Scoopt sold to gettyimages
I saw yesterday that Scoopt was sold to gettyimages, terms undisclosed. I really liked the story at the time, but I guess it didn't take off in the way it might have. For every youtube there are of course many startups that don't make it as far. Nonetheless, congratulations to Kyle for seeing it through this far and good luck at Getty!
BarCampScotland kicks off
We have already over 80 people who found their way to the scenic Appleton Tower (well the inside is anyway ;-). Its an unconference and meant to self organise, and the schedules for the different rooms (4 in total) are filling up nicely. I'll still have to decide what I will talk on, its a toss-up between talking about fundraising in general or helping people to build a simple financial model for their project. I'll see what people are interested in.
