The big story this year was last month's surprise acquisition of Pinboard's long-time nemesis Delicious. This illustrates the importance of always having a backup nemesis, an area where Pinboard leads the industry.

But it's also been a rough year for Pinboard users! In November I began traveling extensively in support of Tech Solidarity, an attempt to mobilize tech workers after the disastrous US election.
All the travel meant I sometimes ignored support emails for weeks at a time. In the last couple of months, I've taken a bit of a reverse sabbatical to try to stabilize the site, make it easier for me to monitor and run, and catch up with a backlog of very, very, very irate messages.
I also baked this delicious pie...
As every year, I'd like to thank all Pinboard users, old and new, for their support and their custom. I know there are lots of rival bookmarking services out there.
I will consume them, one by one, like I consumed the pie.

I like how Maciej of Pinboard is very open about the key metrics of Pinboard. Another view of the indie software world as a business and how they can slowly build and become nicely profitable.
