Online-Mixtape-Tool Mixwit is no more

Na toll, nach Muxtape schließt jetzt auch mit dem schicksten aller Mixtape-Tools mein Lieblingsdings für Mixtapes seine Pforten. Über die Gründe hüllen sich die Macher in Schweigen, man kann sich aber an einem Finger ausrechnen, was die Gründe dafür sind. Sie haben Mixwit getötet! Ihr Schweine! Hier die Mail der Macher:

We regret to announce that Mixwit will cease to exist at the end of the year.The website and profiles will be turned off around Dec 27th and all embedded widgets will stop playing before the end of December.

We’ve put a year of work into Mixwit so this choice wasn’t taken lightly. I won’t go into the details of our situation but state simply that we boldly marched into in a position best described as “between a rock and a hard place.” We’re very grateful to be have been part of the mixtape revival of ‘08 and are satisfied to be able to to bow out while things are still good.

You guys are all amazing. It’s clear that all of you put a ton of time and effort into your mixes. For me personally, I was looking forward to all of the designs people created for their tapes. There was a lot of basic tapes and many lovely photos, but the designs and artwork - WOW!

We’re very sorry that this has to end. We’re going to try to figure out some way to archive the artwork and playlists, if for nothing at least historic value. As for now, everything needs to be shut down by the end of the year just to make sure we’ve got a clean start for 2009.

We’ll return early next year with a new company and new toys. Until then, enjoy the holidays and please take good care of yourselves, your families, and your friends =)

- Radley & Mike

Und deshalb jetzt nochmal mit G'fui und demnächst Opentape, die Open Source-Lösung für Online-Mixtapes.
