Digg’s Kevin Rose launches Pownce
Pownce is a great way to send stuff to people you know. Add friends, then send them big files, invite them to upcoming events, share great links, and whip off a note to anyone, everyone, or just a few people.
At least to start, we’re keeping some control over registration so that we can scale the system under control. Scaling? It basically means that if a ton of people joined all at once at the beginning our site might slow down to a crawl. That would suck for everyone. So, as we get confident with the performance of the site, we’ll begin letting more and more people in.
As early as now, there are so many negative comments from readers of TechCrunch, citing it is no different from Facebook, Twitter, or from any regular email features.
I guess the big question is: Will Pownce reach the stardom enjoyed by Digg?
