Om Malik, Paul Kedrosky, Mark Evans, Kent Newsome and a lot of others are discussing the latest rumour that Six Apart has raised another $12 million. Normally, I'd add something like this to my link blog and move on, but this one is interesting. Why does Six Apart need more money? They sell product. Are they still running a big loss? Or is this one of those investments that happens in the months leading up to a takeover or IPO? An IPO seems unlikely. Will Yahoo! buy them? Is Six Apart gonna buy Technorati? The next three months should be interesting.
