It was on January 2012 that the warning bell started sounding that all was not well at Mevio. Yesterday I got a final email telling me that Mevio.com was finally shutting down on the 16th April. Hardly a surprise. What took them so long?
In a week when the BBC was reminiscing about the first 10 years of podcasting, including interviews with Adam Curry, it seems rather ironic this is the week his creation is about to close.
Mevio divided the idealists and rewarded a few. It had high hopes and desperate lows. It was inspiring and then it was disappointing. At least it tried to be different, and I enjoyed being part of the team for a while.
