Pownce is a mini blog platform just like Twitter, but personally, I use it more frequently than Twitter, so Pownce is Dying is a very bad news for me.
In fact, it is not so surprise to hear the news. I had predicted its fate before. Site like Twitter, Pownce is very difficult to monetize, so the death is quite reasonable, especially now we are facing serious global financial crisis, no wonder so many websites are shutting down. The good news for Pownce is Six Apart acquires it other than shut down forever. But now we have known how will Six Apart develop Pownce.
Now I'm waiting for good news from Six Apart and Pownce and I hope I can continue use Pownce in Six Apart.
God bless Pownce!
