Serving Community Enterprise

I'm picking up rumours like this one http://chris.pirillo.com/the-future-of-ning-communities/ that Ning is looking for new cash and having problems with their business model. It wouldn't be the first free network to crash. Anyone heard anything substantive?

Hi Rob
Yes, unfortunately they will start charging from next month. Now they're charging Im not sure if we'll stick with them long term, im certainly looking at other options so if you have any recommendations please let me know. In the medium term it would be better for us to build our own ning (off ELGG software) for all CICs to use, but how we develop will ultimately be down to how much investment/support we can attract.
We want to add a few other online resources such as a marketplace, so i'll probably just cover the costs until we can get investment for the next stage of development, whatever way we go we'll have to keep it on the cheap!
Best
John
