The founders of Pownce announced they are closing their social networking platform and joining Six Apart – the creators of Movable Type, TypePad and Vox, the company blog announced today.
Co-founder Leah Culver stated in the blog, “We’re bittersweet about shutting down the service but we believe we’ll come back with something much better in 2009. We love the Pownce community and we will miss you all.”
“Mike and I have joined Six Apart as part of their engineering team and we’re looking forward to being a part of the talented group that has created amazing tools for blogging and publishing,” he explained.
Given the technology will join Six Apart and that company’s strength in the blogging software arena, Leah’s comment that they should be coming back in 2009 with something “much better” is intriguing.
