Pownce R.I.P.

Got this email today, after I already heard the news from Techmeme, Techcrunch, inter alia:
We are sad to announce that Pownce is shutting down on December 15,
2008. As of today, Pownce will no longer be accepting new users or new
pro accounts.

It took me a few minutes to recall I had a Pownce account. The site never seemed to have a functional focus, was eclipsed by FriendFeed, and never had the same community potential as Twitter. I guess Kevin Rose isn't the good tech luck talisman Digg made him seem to be.
