Namo Media Acquired by Twitter!

I'm excited to announce that our startup, Namo Media, has been acquired by Twitter!

We will be joining the MoPub team at Twitter, where we will be working on making native mobile advertising easier and more profitable for developers.

It's been quite the ride, and I hope I'll have some time soon to write about how this came about and where I think the mobile ads space will be heading.

Read more here on the Namo Media blog and the Twitter blog.

My New Startup: Namo Media

You may have been wondering what I've been up to since we sold DrawChat late last year.

The answer may not surprise you: I've been working on a new startup, Namo Media. I've teamed up with some fellow ex-Googlers, Nassar Stoertz and Tural Badirkhanli to work on a new solution for mobile advertising that's less disruptive and more elegant than those pesky banner ads you see today.

Today we're announcing our seed round, $1.875M in total from Google Ventures, Betaworks, Andreessen Horowitz, Trinity Ventures, along with some amazing angels: Kevin Scott, Seth Berman, Chung-Man Tam, Keith Coleman, Garrick Toubassi, Tikhon Bernstam, Michael Levit, Benjamin Ling, and Paul Buchheit.

You can learn more on the Namo Media homepage.
