Marco sells the-Magazine to Glenn Fleishman

Marco has been on a roll this year first with the sale of Instapaper to Betaworks(you must try their Dots game) and Now the sale of The Magazine to Glenn Fleishman. InBetween these two changeovers Tumblr(marco was a lead developer and an initial member there) got acquired by Yahoo.

Why does this matter, you ask?, If you use the Instapaper app and/or subscribe to the Magazine like I do, you might be wondering on the future of these apps. Knowing and following Marco over the years since i got the iPhone, i am sure this change will hardly be noticed for you and me. Not to undermine the talent of Glenn here, but Knowing Marco, I am sure he must have found the right person for Magazine and hence the transition.


Marco sells majority stake in Instapaper

Instapaper probably was my first paid app when I got the iphone 4 3 years back. It has seen a tremendous growth over the past couple of years.It was a great product for a one person developer. Though Marco‘s decision comes up to me as a surprise the decision is good for the end users and for the product which is very appreciable.

If you are an Instapaper fan you would like to hear more of the reasoning in Marco’s own voice here
