Instapaper Going Independant Once Again

Instapaper, which has been around since 2008, by Marco Arment. Shortly after I started using it and love it. I still use it to this day. They say -

Today, we’re announcing that Pinterest has entered into an agreement to transfer ownership of Instapaper to Instant Paper, Inc., a new company owned and operated by the same people who’ve been working on Instapaper since it was sold to betaworks by Marco Arment in 2013. The ownership transfer will occur after a 21 day waiting period designed to give our users fair notice about the change of control with respect to their personal information.

Instapaper does a much better job explaining their history than I can. I’m curious what the reasoning and situation is here, but I wish the best of luck to them.

I’m hoping we continue to get more of what makes instapaper great. Good luck instapaper team! Excited to see what’s going on for the next few months.
