Have you heard of Tinychat? If not, you're probably about to.

The video chat platform was launched in 2009 and has just raised $1.5 million in funding.

How did it rake in that money? Celebrity investors! Both P. Diddy and Ashton Kutcher made investments. Other big investors included Naval Ravikant, A-Grade, Madonna manager Guy Oseary, and billionaire Ron Burkle.

Tinychat currently peaks at around 35,000 concurrent users per second, as many as there are new users signing up every day. The site gets visited about 20 million times per month, and there are 100+ servers keeping the system afloat today.
