What an odd acquisition, or partnership, or whatever this is deemed to be.
It's essentially a hire. The only thing acquired was the Kippt/Inc team, who had already been heavily involved with the development and design of Coinbase.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the guys responsible for Kippt also do all of the design for Coinbase?
Karri was involved in the recent redesign, yes. Coinbase mentions that fact in their own blog post announcing the acquihire: http://blog.coinbase.com/post/84943193714/coinbase-welcomes-the-kippt-team
I asked over on HN but got no response, can anyone recommend a quality (and reliable) alternative to Kippt for easy bookmarking?
Dragdis looks interesting.
Pinboard seems to be one of the few bookmarking sites impervious to the “build a great product until you get bought out, then shut it down” syndrome.
Dragdis and Pinboard, like the other comments.
I actually just created a wordpress blog on my domain & added an 'email to post' plugin.
I'm going to just build my own (in a simple sense). Too many of these sites come and go and that inherently defeats the purpose of the service.
I migrated from kippt to Raindrop 3 months back and i really liked it. Kippt had a bug which made me to login everytime I had to save a link, and besides no notification if the page gets saved. Raindrop has no issues till now. It works very well.
I'm a big fan of Diigo. I actually switched from Diigo to Kippt because I liked Kippt's design and integrations a little more. I ended up switching back because Diigo seemed to have much better search capabilities and I liked the organization of bookmarks a little more.
Would very like to see what comes next, or even if the kippt code would be released to the community.
Most of them seems to offer visual bookmarking, browser bookmarklet, tags and search, groups. Nothing about what the future holds for those services, as with every single web app out there :)
Congrats to Kippt (I think?)
I'm glad I didn't transfer everything over to Kippt a few years ago, it'd be annoying to search for a new service and begin again.
Inc will keep seeing small improvements, as a side project for us.
Our company has been using Inc as a link repository and ad-hoc knowledge base for the last couple of months. So, yeah. This sucks.
Anyone have a good alternative for business?
Sad to hear this. Kippt was a lovely web app...
I'd been using it religiously to bookmark my favourite bits of UI design off dribbble (as their listing interface is so much nicer)
Ah damn, this is a little annoying. I moved from Zootool to Kippt not long back.
On the look out for something new now. I'm reluctant to try Dragdis, I find the saving mechanism a bit intrusive.
Does anyone remember the name of that new web-app that is similar to Kippt but saves to Dropbox somehow? I think it was in beta
Edit: For those who are interested, the Dropbox service I was asking about is Octobox, looks pretty cool: http://useoctobox.com/
First Zootool dies, now Kippt?
