It really saddens me to see BK go in a direction that I can have nothing to do with. Group Texting would be a big deal and worth changing over too if you didn't have services like TextPlus, Tatango, WhatsApp and Pingchat already doing the same thing, and all have been doing it for a while.
Nothing has really been the same since the original team left the BK offices. @sprouticus was one of the best community managers I have every had the pleasure of dealing with and meeting in real life. @hiro and @brady truly cared about their baby and would do anything for their users. Sadly most of us knew bad things were coming when the 3 of them left the company.
It's been a nice journey Brightkite, it's had up's and downs, but it looks now that it must all come to an end. I will miss you, but I can thank you for one thing. Thank you for giving me a second family.
