Goodbye Postachio

Alas, there can be only one result for educators who rely on companies in the education space. This doesn’t make the companies bad for trying to make money, but it means you have to have an exit strategy.

My exit strategy for the loss of Postach.io is simple–delete my account, cut my losses and move on. Mourning isn’t an option; it’s happened so many times before, I’m a bit inured to it. I rejoiced in Postach.io because it offered a functionality that Evernote once allowed by default–RSS feeds–then chose to discontinue for unknown reasons.

Thanks Postach.io! It was fun! But $90 a year pricing model won’t fly when I’m already paying for Evernote. Whew, I’m having Diigo flashbacks.

As of this moment, the following sites no longer exist, mguhlin.postach.io and evernoteit.postach.io. As they say, it’s better to shoot your own dog than let a stranger do it.

When the need arises – and it does – you must be able to shoot your own dog. –Robert A. Heinlein
