Last chance to save your Pownce data
If you were one of the relatively few who frequented the Pownce social network, today is the last chance to save a copy of your data.
Pownce will be going offline today, and users of the service -- essentially Twitter with multimedia uploading -- have until the end of the day to use the export tool to take your profile with you. The settings page lets users make a copy of the Web-based messages and media, compatible with the Vox social network or blogging platforms, such as WordPress and TypePad.
Pownce co-founder and lead developer Leah Culver announced earlier this month that the website had been acquired by blogging tool Six Apart. Six Apart eased the minds of Pownce Pro users -- those who paid for an upgraded account -- by offering a free year's subscription to TypePad.
Pownce isn't the only Web tool that will be closing its doors soon. Values of N, the developer of e-mail reminder service Sandy, and personal notes Web app Stikkit, have joined the Twitter team.
