BitGravity Co-Founder Announces 3Crowd, Funded By Jay Adelson And Kevin Rose




3Crowd Technologies, Barrett Lyon's new stealth startup, has announced that the company has received funding from Storm Ventures, Greenwich Technology Associates and angels Kevin Rose and Jay Adelson participating as well. Lyon didn't disclose the amount of funding, but characterizes it as a convertible note.

3Crowd is currently in stealth right now, but will be launching mid to late next month. Lyon didn't go too much into detail on what 3Crowd is going to be, but he mentioned that it has to do with crowd sourcing as applied to the underlying technology of the Internet, and he claims it will change crowdsourcing.
