Instapaper: Under New Managment

Marco Arment’s sold Instapaper (at least most of his interest in it). It appears, however, he didn’t pull this off by finding the biggest company willing to write a check with the largest number of zeros but instead sought out a company, in this case betaworks, willing to shower love on Instapaper as he did.

I sure hope there is some anal-retentive person at betaworks willing to sweat the details like Marco does. I’ve been using Instapaper since it was just a web service. With the arrival of the iPad, my infatuation turned into love and Instapaper still is one of the most used apps on my iPad.

I get overcommitment and I can’t wait to see what Marco creates next. I wish him luck but I doubt he needs it.
