The Dodo! It’s happening. Former Salon honcho Kerry Lauerman stands at the helm of the soon-to-debut animal-themed site, Popular Science writer Dan Nosowitz has hopped aboard as founding editor, and of course let’s not forget backer Ken Lerer and his daughter, Isabel.
The latest update: The startup has filed a Form D announcing it’s raised $1.2 million in capital. Presumably that money comes from Mr. Lerer, who announced back in the summer he’d be backing the site and offering office space. (We’ve reached out to confirm and will update if we hear anything back.)
Are there not enough animals on your Internet? Do you ever open up your browser and navigate to YouTube or Twitter or Facebook and think, “Man, this Internet I’m on here could really use some more pictures of cute puppies.” BuzzFeed chairman and Huffington Post cofounder Ken Lerer has you covered.
