The Five Stages of Hosting

The Five Stages of Hosting (Pinboard Blog).

I always love to see a new post from the Pinboard Blog show up in my feed reader, and this is no exception. Perhaps the most interesting part of Pinboard is how public Maciej Ceglowski has been throughout it’s growth.

With the disaster that happened to Delicious, Pinboard had a huge influx of not only user signups, but bookmark imports as well, and that time put a stress on Pinboard and also put it on the map for good.

This post covers The Five Stages of Hosting and outlines the pros and cons of each. While many of you likely already understand the implications of each, it’s neat to read pieces like this to find out where on the spectrum you are or may have been.
