Xconomy - For Innovation Reporting on Cleantech
I attended the Innovation Journalism conference (about covering innovation, not about reinventing journalism, although the two topics definitely converged this year) and enjoyed a presentation by Xconomy founder Bob Buderi, who formerly edited Technology Review.
Xconomy is a web-only news site, covering innovation businesses in Seattle, Boston, and San Diego. It covers life sciences, tech, and cleantech along with other emergent businesses.
Today's issue has an interesting story about funding Viryd Technologies, a wind turbine company. All of the $2.2 million was raised from individual investors.
