Flip.com has flipped, stick a fork in its ass it’s done

Flip.com, the Conde Nast attempt at social networking thru the use of scrap books or flip books is shutting down. It’s really not so much of a surprise, they choose a very small niche market of a very fickle type that general run in cliques — teenage girls. That is a tough market to crack!

While I thought they did a decent job at creating an easy to use interface with hooks to facebook for grabbing images, I just didn’t see the business model.

Pownce enters the deadpool

When I first signed up for Pownce it was probably a few weeks after I had started to use Twitter. I sent my Twitter updates to Pownce, because I was too lazy to update in yet another place. I checked in every week or so and never generated any traction in my user base, so after a couple of months I just started ignoring it, other than the occasional email from Leah, with a link to some image of mp3.
To me it seems like Pownce died about 6 months ago, and has been limping along on life support, it’s the decent thing to do—pull the plug.
