News Aggregation Service Publish2 Gets $2.75 Million Funding

Publish2, an as-yet unlaunched news aggregation service aimed for journalists and media companies, has received $2.75 million in its first round of funding from Velocity Interactive Group, the very-prolific VC firm which includes Jon Miller and Ross Levinsohn. The service is being described as “an online news aggregation platform, designed to empower the world’s journalists to discover, organize, and rank the most important news — to benefit their own reporting, their newsrooms, and all news consumers on the web.” It uses tools such as bookmarking, tags and commenting to help journalists aggregate and report on news. The new money will be used to complete the development of the platform and hiring. Not sure how different it is from other personal news aggregation tools out there, but this ons specifically focuses on professional journalists.
