Push Pop Press Acquired by Facebook

Ugh, what a bummer — Push Pop Press, the software designers behind Our Choice for iOS, has been acquired:

With millions of people publishing to Facebook each day, we think it’s going to be a great home for Push Pop Press. […]
There are no plans to continue publishing new titles or building out our publishing platform that was in private beta.

I really thought the tools they were building, and the vision they described for electronic publishing, would have been a great fit for academe. I guess that’s one of the problems with being so good — you’re too good for a big fish to overlook.

Have something to say about this?
