After being acquired by Six Apart, Pownce is shutting down on December 15th.
It is sad, but it is true, at the beginning I thought it was some spam message that I got in the mail, but after reading both Pownce and Six Apart blogs, it is confirmed that the company that brought to you great platforms such as TypePad and Movable Type (Six Apart) has acquired Pownce.com or should I say acquired the team at Pownce!
The founder of Pownce (Leah Culver) along with (Mike Malone) are moving to work with Six Apart on growing the vision as part of the engineering team (Here is a link to the Pownce blog).
It is sad to see a great service go down, but I am looking forward for the next innovation from the team.
As for my account, I am removing the link to my Pownce profile as of December 15th and I will use the exporting tool that they have just added (There is mercy still in the world) to save all my friends contacts and may be able to import all to this blog!
I wonder if Kevin Rise will join the team as well?! I will however look for Leah and Kevin’s tweets.
