About this weblog
Here we'll report daily on the latest tech and business developments in New York City. Impossible we concede: comprehensive coverage of the city's every story. What we hope you'll find: tips, tidbits and perspectives you won't find elsewhere. As well as unique insights, original interviews and more that should be of interest to New York's vibrant community of technologists and those who track, invest in and report on them.
Boonty, a Manhattan-based distributor of downloadable video games, has raised $10 million in series B venture capital funding. The new investment financing will be used to expand Boontys technology as well as sales and marketing operations in North America, Europe and Asia. In August, Boonty plans to offer a "web-to-mobile game store" that will enable consumers to download games from the Internet to their cell phones.
