One of the last posts from 2006 was about Performancing acquisition: an important part of a start-up focused on helping bloggers has been bought by a company with a very bad reputation. Well, the deal is now off. "After much discussion, we've decided that the deal proposed by PayPerPost just isn't right for us or our community," says Nick Wilson from Performancing.
But the good news don't stop here: Performancing Metrics will become open-source, their Firefox editor for blogs will have a new identity: ScribeFire. Unfortunately, this also means that Performancing Metrics ends here, at least until it finds a developer community to adopt it.
On a brighter note, FeedBurner has just launched a stats package for blogs (based on BlogBeat) and Google should also relaunch Measure Map.
