When entrepreneurs hire, they turn first to the people close to them. But how close? In the case of Digg founder Kevin Rose, that means hiring his ex-girlfriend Sarah Lane as director of production for Revision3, his online-video startup. People close to Rose and Lane say she was "the love of his life," which should make things awkward at the office. Lane, you see, married someone else after breaking up with Rose.
But Lane and Rose's professional relationship predates their personal one, and may prove a more lasting bond. The two cohosted "The Screen Savers," a television program on the late, lamented TechTV cable channel. The TechTV reunion also includes Martin Sargent, Revision3's new director of comedy programming, as well as Jim Louderback, Revision3's new CEO.
