http://techcrunch.com – Children are our future, and VCs are giving them the cash to make it happen. Dylan Field, one of Peter Thiel’s 20-Under-20 fellows, just raised $3.8 million for his startup Figma according to an SEC filing. Field declined to talk with me about Figma, but the Thiel Fellowship site says “Dylan is building a browser based photo editing tool.” The raise comes as Snapchat, whose founders average out to age 23, just picked up a $60 million Series B round and cashed out $20 million in stock themselves. It’s looking like Silicon Valley has a new love affair with kids. Wait, no, (IT news)
