Pownce is Shutting Down


TechCrunch reported today that Pownce is shutting its doors. The famed Kevin Rose start up is shutting down December 15th and the engineers are joining Six Apart.  In my inbox, I received the following note:

We are sad to announce that Pownce is shutting down on December 15,
2008. As of today, Pownce will no longer be accepting new users or new
pro accounts.

To help with your transition, we have built an export tool so you can
save your content. You can find the export tool at Settings > Export.
Please export your content by December 15, 2008, as the site will not
be accessible after this date.

Please visit our new home to find out more:

Our thanks go out to everyone who contributed to the Pownce community,

The Pownce Crew

What is amazing is how Twitter is just running away with the micro-blogging space regardless of the performance issues and lack of features everyone has been clamoring for.  I’m still very bullish on the micro-blogging space and am very curious to see how the space plays out.  There is still lots of growth to be had.
