Findory Set to Coast to a Halt

Findory CEO & founder Greg Linden announced Sunday that he is abandoning Findory. After looking around in vain for a plan for the news aggregator/search/social network that would help him retain his passion, Linden has decided to let the site coast to a halt instead.

"I am moving on now, not to a new venture, but to spend more time on health and with family. Development on Findory now will slow to a crawl. There may be new features, but they will be rare. I no longer will spend time exploring funding, biz dev deals, or recruiting. Findory appears to have sufficient resources to run on autopilot through most of 2007. Findory will eventually fade away, but I believe it has touched immortality through the impact it had."

Findory launched in 2004.
