NowPublic is a user-generated social news website. The company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and was founded by Michael Tippett, Leonard Brody and Michael E. Meyers in 2005. On Sept. 2, 2009 the company was acquired by Clarity Digital Group, LLC, wholly owned by The Anschutz Company, a Denver-based investment company. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

In addition to content contributed by users, NowPublic had a content-sharing agreement with the Associated Press.[citation needed]

Time magazine named one of the Top 50 websites of 2007.[1] In 2009, the site was nominated for an Emmy in Advanced Technology.



On July 30, 2007, a Canadian national daily, The Globe and Mail, announced that NowPublic Technologies had closed a US$10.6 million round of financing from North American venture capital groups, following several takeover offers. These investors include New York's Rho Ventures and its Montreal affiliate and early investing Canadian firms Brightspark and GrowthWorks.[2]
