It’s sad to see another free internet service closing down shop. Pownce sent a mail to all it’s users announcing the fact that they will be shutting down the service on the 15th of this month. They also announced on their website that Pownce has been accquired by the blogging company Six Apart the flyboys movie
the makers of Movable Type, TypePad and Vox. The Pownce team will be working on the various projects in Six Apart.
I had signed up in Pownce a few months back, based on the recommended by this hot babe I met online, but none of my contacts had accounts there, save for a couple. And just keeping track on Facebook, Orkut & MySpace takes a lot out of me, so I hadn’t been to my Pownce account more than a few times. But it’s still sad.
