MySpace Founders Head North In Casual Gaming Deal

MySpace founders Chris DeWolfe, Colin Digiaro, and Aber Whitcomb are taking the reins at a casual and social gaming venture called MindJolt, which announced its funding Wednesday. The new firm, based out of San Francisco, is being funded by Austin Ventures. The three said they acquired MindJolt, a developer of games for Facebook and other social networking sites, as part of the effort, but did not disclose financial terms of the deal. The new firm will be headed by former MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe. Digiaro was former Head of Monetization and a co-founder at SlingShot Labs, and Whitcomb was formerly co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at MySpace.
