The Curse of Free Software

Been a lifelong paying user of Instapaper. It’s just the best. When they asked people to pay (1 buck a month) I gladly did. Now Pinterest has taken over and it’s all free. Which sounds great, but then makes you wonder if and when they might have second thoughts and turn it off. Which would be genuinely painful if you have hundreds of archived links and it’s an integral part of your content consumption workflow. Better to start backing up and finding a second source, I guess.
