Mashable reports that myYearbook is generating $20 million in revenue per year, up 70 percent from 2008 and growing, with its base of 20 million users. The company’s virtual currency and virtual goods model was estimated early in its existence to be generating a third of the company’s revenue, as we’ve reported. myYearbook is focusing on expanding its partnerships with gaming platforms like Zynga and SGN with new hire Scott Levine, formerly the Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at Sony Music Entertainment.

After several months of milestone extensions, we didn’t believe Yasmine Mustafa when she told us last week that her affiliate link marketing service 123LinkIt was launching this week in Alpha.

Dave Martorana has launched Mailroom [iTunes], an iPhone app that aims to improve the workflow of Gmail and Google Apps email accounts, according to the IndyHall newsletter. The application is meant for power users who manage several accounts. It includes an attachment viewer and its own native Web browser.

GIVE A GLANCE

GIS startup Avencia has extended the ESRI ArcGIS Flex API and its DecisionTree mapping tools to support OpenStreetMap, an open source global mapping initiative, which as far as we can tell, until recently had an active community in Philadelphia before the Meetup group dissipated.
