SplashCastDeath announcement: August 2009Portland, Ore.-based SplashCast was one of our favorites when it came on the scene in early 2007. It started out as a way to share multiple media types in one simple, embedded player. Shortly thereafter it strayed from its roots, becoming a publishing tool for mass-media content providers. Later on the company let users chat while watching hosted TV shows. What ended the site was simply a cash flow problem. In a going-out-of-business post on the company's blog, CEO Mike Berkeley chalked up SplashCast's demise to being unable to get more funding from venture capitalists.
