Delicious Founder Raises Funding For Tasty Labs’ Take On Social Software

Earlier this month, we noted that Delicious founder Joshua Schachter, together with Nick Nguyen (the former director of add-ons for Mozilla) and Paul Rademacher, the man known for creating “the first true Web 2.0 application”, was working on a new stealthy startup called Tasty Labs.

This morning, Union Square Ventures partner Albert Wenger revealed on his blog that the firm has backed Tasty Labs alongside Andreessen Horowitz and unnamed angel investors.

It’s unclear how much Tasty Labs raised, but we’re trying to find out. Oh, and according to this (new?) line on their sparse website, they’re going to try and put “the useful back into social software”.

Union Square of course knows Schachter well – they invested in Delicious back in 2005 (the company was acquired by Yahoo the same year).
