And­rees­sen Horo­witz glaubt an und steckt 50 Mil­lio­nen Dol­lar in Buz­z­feed. Chris Dixon wird Direc­tor und schreibt:

Buz­z­Feed star­ted out focu­sing on light­weight con­tent like memes, lists, fun­ny pho­tos, etc. This led some indus­try obser­vers to dis­miss Buz­z­feed as a “toy”. The com­pa­ny has sin­ce moved steadi­ly up mar­ket, fol­lowing the typi­cal path of dis­rup­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gies. It now has an edi­to­ri­al staff of over 200 peop­le covering a wide ran­ge of topics – poli­tics, sports, busi­ness, enter­tain­ment, tra­vel, etc – and plans to invest signi­fi­cant­ly more in high-qua­li­ty con­tent in the com­ing years.

Ich bin mal gespannt, ob das mit den Memes und Listi­cles hier in Deutsch­land auch so gut funktioniert.
