Performancing - Pay Per Post Deal Called off


The Pay Per Post deal to acquire Performancing has been called off Metrics goes Open Source - PayPerPost Deal is Off

After much discussion, we've decided that the deal proposed by PayPerPost just isnt right for us or our community. It's regrettable that we should part ways as I still feel that Dan and Ted are stand up guys breaking new ground, but in the end, the deal was just not right for them or us.


I already got a dodgy email

I already got a dodgy email from them, so they already have Nick's database. Maybe he just sold it on the sly? Maybe they fucked him over once they got the database? Maybe he sent it out on their behalf? Who knows eh?

I am sure Nick and Patrick

I am sure Nick and Patrick will continue to make wise decisions for the Performancing/ Scribefire brand and business.

PPP, your loss guys!

on the sly

>Maybe he just sold it on the sly

Knowing both Nick and Patrick I'd say that's just not the way either of them operate.

Breakup on the aisle

Oh, the deal seemed like a perfect marriage to me. But frankly speaking, there was not much for Performancing to gain from the alliance. So did they finally see the light?

PayPerPost: It is quite disheartening to note the fact that the deal has been terminated abruptly. The deal promised many things. I personally looked forward at the deal. The acquisition of Performancing would have provided PayPerPost a better platform to develop quality contents for the blogs as well sites.

the code, the code ...

It will be interesting to see the source code. Of course I'll be looking for the blog specific snippets to see about integrating it into my existing analytics engine.

Sorry to hear it didn't go

Sorry to hear it didn't go right - could have been nice for Nick. However, after I saw Darren Rowse raising concerns about the deal I guess there was a risk of losing key inventory. Hopefully the longer Performancing runs, the more valuable it will be to acquire, and deliver Nick a nice pension. :)

This is a good lesson in not

This is a good lesson in not announcing deals of this sort until everyone has signed on the dotted line.
