Today isn’t April Fool’s, so I guess this must be legit – according to the company blog, Pownce is shutting down, and their employees and technology are moving to a company called Six Apart.  I’d never even heard of Six Apart before, but their blog also confirms it.

I wonder whether this is a good thing or a sign of the recession.

To be honest, although I’ve been a member of Pownce for a long time I didn’t really post a lot there.  It never really grabbed me as a file sharing tool because of the small maximum file size, and I have my own blog to blog with.  Their site was also always trying to sell me premium membership without offering anything that was worth the money.
