Montreal-based StatusNet , the company behind the open-source microblogging service identi.ca , is closing an $875,000 seed round today. Investors include Montreal Startup , iNovia Capital , Fotolia co-founder Oleg Tscheltzoff , and Xavier Niel. The startup, which changed its name a few weeks ago from Control Yourself, raised a previous seed round of $150,000 from Montreal Startup in January, 2009. StatusNet wants to become the WordPress of microblogging. It created an open-source microblogging software platform (formerly called laconi.ca, now called status.net) which anyone can download and run on their own servers. Now, it is working on a hosted version of Status.net, currently in private beta.
