Over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of work on my plugins. I’ve found out that with each new release, they get more users, which is good, and get more time demanding, which is unfortunate. Now with OrangeValley going so well, and the things we have planned there, as well as my wife being 7 months pregnant and the fact that we’ll thus have a 2nd kid soon, I probably won’t have as much time as I used to have to maintain all my plugins.
So when the guys from startups.com approached me about whether they could take over maintenance on Sociable, I happily said yes. They have plenty of experience and some very good ideas for the plugin, so I’m confident they’ll do a good job.
Before any of you ask: yes, some money was involved in this transaction, but I can tell you that if I had to buy everyone who reads this a beer I’d still be bankrupt. I’ll still be involved in the development for a while, but they’ll be responsible for keeping the plugin up to date from now on. The new home for Sociable is called blogplay.com, and all that is left for me is to wish them all the best with maintaining Sociable!
