Daylife, the much-hyped online news aggregation site which launched for public consumption in January but hasn’t gained much traction as of yet, has raised $8 million in second round of funding, according to SEC filings, picked up by PEHub. Investors include previous investor the New York Times Co., and led by new investor Balderton Capital (f.k.a. Benchmark Capital Europe) and included Arts Alliance Digital Ventures. A good review of the service is here, though the site has changed its layout and functionalities since the launch.
