Calacanis Launches News Aggregation Service Inside.com
Santa Monica-based Mahalo, the startup led by tech celebrity Jason Calacanis, apparently is shifting its focus to a new effort called Inside.com, focused on mobile news. According to Calacanis, Inside.com will offer up curation of news via a mobile app, aimed at highlighting the top news stories for users and summarizing the key facts of those stories. Inside.com is the latest pivot for Mahalo, the company which Calacanis originally started as a human-powered search engine, but which most recently had been focused on YouTube "how to" videos.
