Dave Morin Talks Path 2.1, Facebook’s IPO Effect, And Those New Funding Rumors [TCTV]

TechCrunch TV talked to Path co-founder and CEO Dave Morin last week while we were at the South By Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Texas. It’s always interesting to talk to Morin, who is widely regarded as one of the most well-connected and in-the-know entrepreneurs in today’s web startup landscape.

The first part of our interview (which you can watch in the video embedded above) was dedicated to the latest update to the Path app, version 2.1, which was released earlier this month. Morin also touched on Path’s API strategy — the company has opened its API to its first third-party partner, Nike, and expects to announce more in the months ahead. We also got his thoughts on what Facebook’s IPO will mean for the startup world (Morin was an early Facebook employee before striking out to start a company of his own), his favorite apps of the moment (he is yet another of Highlight’s big-name fans), and Path’s rumored plans to raise another round of funding.
