PownceMicroblogging service Pownce is closing its doors on December 15th, and the team is joining Six Apart, along with the Pownce technology. This from a blog post:

We’re very happy that Six Apart wants to invest in growing the vision that we the founders of Pownce believe so strongly in and we’re very excited to take our vision to all of Six Apart’s products. 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.

Dirty Laundry Tweeting

It’s dangerous to Twitter, that’s for sure! Not only is it almost as addictive as asides, but you’ll also have to make sure you don’t blurt something personal to the masses. Like Pownce hotshot Leah Culver did, something about a cheating boyfriend or whatever. That hit Valleywag like something did to the fan. Luckily, the tweet’s been deleted, but if it’s online one time, it’s there forever.

Mind you tweets, people.
