Caterina Fake , who co-founded Flickr along with her husband Stewart Butterfield in 2004, has announced her plans to join a fledgling new startup called Hunch . Flickr is one of the web’s most popular photo-sharing sites, and was acquired by Yahoo in 2005 for $35 million. Since then, Flickr has been one of Yahoo’s most successful properties, but Fake left the company in June as part of the executive exodus from the struggling search giant. In her blog post on the matter, Fake says that she will be joining Hunch as Chief Product Officer.

I love participatory media, collective knowledge systems, user-generated content and the like, and spent much of my life and career participating in them and making them. As I say in this post from 2005, the internet is built on a culture of generosity -- the first web page I built was when I noticed there was no page on Nabokov and realized I could just make one. Amazing! And it dawned on me that every other page on the web -- this was 1994 -- had come about for the same reason. Then the dotcom thing happened.

CBS Labs , which has been testing new HD streaming products, has also rolled out a labs version of a new product called Social Viewing Room. The idea is that you show up to the site, pick a show that’s on right now, and watch it with your friends or whoever is there. You can comment, LOL or take quizzes for points. The link is live , but I’m not able to see any actual shows going on right now.

Barely two months after leaving Slingshot Labs , News Corp’s incubator, the two men formerly running the show, Diego Berdakin and MySpace co-founder Josh Berman, have launched a shiny new venture: a social commerce site called BeachMint . Despite bare-bones information on what the Santa Monica, Calif. company will actually be doing, it just managed to raise $5 million from New Enterprise Associates and Anthem Venture Partners . According to the two well-known co-founders, BeachMint’s mission is to build an end-to-end e-commerce experience across multiple verticals. Each category would have its own recommendation engine, social media tie-ins to allow for sharing and viral marketing, and channels for big-time influencers like celebrities to air their opinions. Berman has said publicly that product recommendations will be generated authentically — leading us to believe that they may be linked to preferences of your “friends” online.
MySpace’s former GM International Travis Katz left the company shortly after the big executive shakeout in the Spring of 2009. He spent a few months in Hawaii recharging, and then moved his family to Silicon Valley. Since January he’s been working on a new startup, he says, and he’s teamed up with Ori Zaltzman , the former Chief Architect of Yahoo Boss. That’s enough of a team to make things really interesting. Particuarly Zaltzman’s deep infrastructure background. Katz isn’t saying what the new startup will do.
