In my last post, quoted from Maciej Cegłowski of Pinboard fame:



In this post, quoted from Eric Meyer, CSS expert nonpareil:
Searching For Mark Pilgrim

Just yesterday, I took a screenshot of the title page of Dive Into HTML5 to include in a presentation as a highly recommended resource. Now it’s gone. That site, along with all the other “Dive Into…” sites (Accessibility, Python, Greasemonkey, etc.) and addictionis.org, is returning an HTTP “410 Gone” message. Mark’s Github, Google+, Reddit, and Twitter accounts have all been deleted. And attempts to email him have been bounced back.

This is very reminiscent of Why the Lucky Stiff’s infosuicide, and it’s honestly shocking.
Followed up with:
Mark Pilgrim is alive/annoyed we called the police. Please stand down and give the man privacy and space, and thanks everyone for caring.
There really is no difference.

Anyway, for those of you thinking of migrating to Pinboard: it's slightly under $10 to get an account (flat fee), which will rise along with the # of users. You can also pay extra annually to get automatic backups of everything you save (pretty neat). Pinboard still isn't quite fleshed out yet despite being a couple years old, but it looks like Maciej will get stuff like tag bundles and group privacy like LJ up in a reasonable amount of time.

If you're still using Delicious, here's a userstyle to make the new layout more tolerable.
