news: boxxet announces launch date, financing round

You Mon Tsang, CEO of Boxxet, told ack/nak today that Boxxet will be officially launching its service on January 16, 2007.

Additionally, the company plans to announce a "small financing round" from Ascend Venture Group.

A special web page established by Boxxet to help describe the service to journalists and the blogosphere has been set up here.

According to the company:
Boxxet brings together the 'best of' news, blogs, photos, gear and much more on people's favorite subjects. Boxxet's unique combination of computer automation and community passion produces the most diverse and complete best-of compilations on the Web's most popular and interesting subjects.

Congratulations to the entire team at Boxxet and to You Mon Tsang for staying focused on what they do very, very well - turning chaotic streams of content into well-organized "sets" of knowledge that everyone can enjoy. If you've never visited Boxxet, visit it today - if you've been following them as long as I have, you'll be amazed at what they've accomplished since beta. Well done!

You've been very supportive from the beginning. I think you bring a realistic optimism to the table and that's rare.

As you told me earlier, now we begin the 1st quarter of the game.
