News ByteLinkedIn profile, Jeff Bonforte has been named SVP of communication products at Yahoo. An insider tipped me to the new title for the former CEO of Xobni, the maker of address-book apps and plugins which Yahoo bought in July. “I have responsibility for Yahoo Mail, Messenger, Groups, Contacts, Calendar and some other stuff,” wrote Bonforte on his profile helpfully (to me!). AllThingsD had previously reported that the well-regarded former Yahoo was likely to get just this key portfolio at Yahoo, which could certainly use his expertise.
News ByteUpTo, which makes an app that lets users feed event streams into their calendars, said today that Detroit Venture Partners and Ludlow Ventures had injected a fresh $1.5 million into the company. UpTo also announced that it was opening its platform to allow any business or organization to create an event stream for free.
