Spinto Is Closing

Wow! This takes me back! Please check the date this post was authored, as it may no longer be relevant in a modern context.

A year ago I launched Spinto, a tool for building simple websites editable by technical and non-technical folks. The app received a truly generous amount of attention, and with the support of the fantastic tech community in New York over a thousand users gave it a spin.

As I look ahead at the time and effort required to take Spinto to a profitable product, I see some serious difficulties. The app is not trivial to run and maintain, so I’ve decided to close Spinto this year instead of allowing it to become abandon-ware.

After today, new Spinto sites will not be available. Current sites will continue to work until May 31st.

My deepest thanks to everyone who lent me a hand, and I’m looking forward to my next project.
