One of the most widely known entrepreneurs (and faces, thanks, in part, to being featured on the cover of BusinessWeek a few years back), Kevin Rose has recently stepped up his angel investing. Since September, the founder of Digg has disclosed investments in six new ventures, including Square, Gowalla, and DailyBooth. His next venture: author. Rose said in a video blog that he will write a book, tentatively titled One to One Million, about the secrets to his success. Michele Husak, Digg’s communications director, couldn’t confirm if a book deal has been signed.
