Kevin ‘Digg’ Rose goes for 3rd startup

First Digg, then the online video network, Revision 3 and now another start-up!

Business Week poster boy Kevin Rose is rumored to have teamed up with Daniel Burka also of Digg, and first time entrepreneur Leah Culver and has started a new company. Rose and Burka have worked closely on tools like Digg Spy. Burka is one of the main designers of Rose and Burka have worked closely for nearly two years.

We have learned from sources familiar with the company, that the trio are currently working on a new kind of a communications tool, that can be dubbed as an IM competitor. The company which is currently operating in stealth mode is going launch sometime later this month. When we contacted Rose, he declined to comment. Seems like he is going to work on this in parallel with the other two start-ups.

His previous two start-ups, Digg and Revision3, have been funded by Greylock Partners’ David Sze.

Errata: Daniel Burka works for Digg, not Stamen Labs, as I wrote earlier. My bad!
