Livemocha in NYTimes

I have commented on the language learning provider Livemocha and they were profiled in the NY Times over the weekend:
LiveMocha introduced its Web site in late September 2007, said Shirish Nadkarni,
chief executive of the company, which is based in Bellevue, Wash. Since then, he said, about 200,000 users from more than 200 countries have joined. “It’s a community of like-minded learners who can leverage their native language proficiency to help one another,” he said. The name “LiveMocha” is meant to evoke the relaxed atmosphere of a coffee shop. The site is still in beta, or testing, phase, Mr. Nadkarni said. Advertising will soon be added, as well as charges for some premium content and services.
The company recently closed on $6mm in additional funding.
