PubSub Facing Closure?

Looks like blog search engine PubSub is about to close, according to Michael Arrington.

Blog search engine PubSub had massive layoffs today after last minute merger discussions with knownow fell apart. It looks like a shutdown is imminent.

I would normally consider this pure speculation, but co-founder Bob Wyman commented on the post and didn’t actually deny the company is shutting down.

It’s a shame. Bob is a nice guy and was fantastic at promoting the company. Unfortunately, it never had the usability that other blog search engines offered.

Hat-tip to RMG.
