Thursday roundup: A new hire at InfoSpace, McCaw's latest bet, etc.

Hmmm 

Craig McCaw is spending a lot of his time these days building Clearwire, the Kirkland wireless Internet company that has attracted more than $1 billion in capital this year. But McCaw's Eagle River Investment has found a new opportunity in Utah. McCaw's firm just led an $11.5 million investment in S5 Wireless, a 3-year-old startup that has developed a low-cost computer chip that can identify the location of pets, the elderly, vehicles, laptops, containers and other items without using global positioning systems or radio frequency identification.
