I got a txt last night telling me that the Micromedia service Pownce is shutting down in the next couple of months.
Pownce gained notability when it started a year or two ago because of the staff it had on board; Leah Culver, Ariel Waldman, Mike Malone etc. Also, DIGG’s Kevin Rose played a large part too.
It would seem that Six Apart thought it would be a good idea to have the Pownce team on their staff and made them a very good offer.
You don’t take on a team without having a plan and Leah mentions that they’ll be working on “something better in 2009”, I can see that there is already something in the works.
