For those that haven’t noticed yet, App.net released a blog post this morning detailing the state of the platform. Basically, App.net is finically viable enough to cover running costs for the foreseeable future but not enough for the DIP to keep going or for App.net to continue employing full time staff.
This, obviously, caused quite a commotion this morning. There were the obvious “RIP ADN” posts as well as some more thought out responses. My initial response was a couple of posts I made shortly after reading the blog post.
