AddToAny, Started In San Diego, Acquired By Lockerz
AddToAny, which develops social sharing widgets for the Wordpress and Drupal blog software packages, has been acquired by social sharing and marketing firm Lockerz. Lockerz announced the deal Tuesday, but did not disclose financial terms. AddToAny was the brainchild of Pat Diven, II, who founded the firm when he was a student at the University of California San Diego. According to Diven's blog, AddToAny was created as a "side project" when he was in college, and was among "several side projects", school, and a "couple of part-time jobs." Diven eventually relocated to the Bay Area. Lockerz is venture backed by Liberty Media and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
