Posterous Finds an Angel in Cambridge

I went to see Avid Technology founder Bill Warner this morning... and he happened to mention that he'd put some money in Posterous, a blogging-via-e-mail start-up that was part of last summer's Y Combinator program in Cambridge.

TechCrunch reported last month that Posterous had raised about $725,000 from XG Ventures and a number of angels.

Warner is not just one of those angels, but he's also a Posterous user. He's using Posterous to run the blog of Oggi Gourmet Foods, the Harvard Square restaurant where he's a co-owner.

(In this recent post, Warner interviews one of Oggi's celebrity customers: Ray Magliozzi, co-host of NPR's "Car Talk.")
