Mixpo mixes with Windows Live

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 11:30 AM

Seattle-based Mixpo, which helps users publish video, photos and audio online, said it is partnering with Windows Live to provide access to more than 120 million users of Windows Live Spaces.

The users will now be able to add media to their Space as an embedded blog entry or a gadget called a "Mixcard." For more information, check out Mixpo's site here.

"Rich media is an important way for people to share their stories with friends or
the world," said David Fortin, senior director of product management at Windows
Live. "Mixpo offers users the simple tools for publishing multimedia they want to
maintain control of, expanding the ways in which they can share their stories with
confidence."

Mixpo, which is funded by Madrona Venture Group, most likely secured this relationship with Windows Live through Anupam Gupta, Mixpo's COO. Prior to joining Mixpo in July, he worked at Microsoft for eight years,
most recently as the director of product management for Windows Live
initiatives.

Mixpo also garnered some attention this week after presenting at Demo 07, an annual event in Palm Desert, Calif., that draws lots of investors and jouranlists.
