Ex-Digg CEO Jay Adelson to take the reins at location startup SimpleGeo


>>Jay Adelson, the former CEO of Digg, will take over as CEO of location startup SimpleGeo effective immediately.

If you’re not familiar with SimpleGeo, basically they offer developer tools, including APIs, that pack a ton of location data into a concise and easy-to-use format so that developers can build location into their apps.

SimpleGeo’s current CEO and co-founder Matt Galligan (read our interview with him earlier this year), will move to Chief Strategy Officer when Adelson joins. The startup’s other co-founder, Joe Stump, was previously the lead engineer at Digg, and worked for Adelson for a number of years.
