More funding for Riya

I blogged a bit about Riya late last year and TechCrunch is now reporting that they’ve just sealed a further $15 million bucks from an existing investor.

For those of you who don’t know anything about Riya, check my previous post here. Their background is in facial recognition, tagging photos the way you tag your blog, or del.icio.us links so you can search your photos, and others, based on faces, locations, backgrounds etc. Word has it they’re still taking alpha testers too if you’re interested.
