Grove isn't dead, it's only resting

by Jacob Kaplan-Moss |   More posts by Jacob

The news is out: we acquired Grove today, and we're taking over operations immediately.

We think Grove is an incredibly cool tool: it's an IRC server masquerading as a web-based chat application. It's got a really slick web UI that anyone can use, but behind the scenes is IRC, a proven technology trusted by über-geeks everywhere. We love the way Grove bridges the new and the old.

We're first and foremost Grove users, so we think we've got a good grasp of what Grove's other users want. In the short term our focus is going to be on fixing connectivity and improving site performance, but after that we've got some big ideas we're planning to implement. And of course we'd love to hear your ideas for what Grove should do; let us know at team@grove.io.

We're really glad that we could give Grove a home at Revsys. We think it's a great match for our company, and we can't wait to start working on our big ideas.

If you're already a Grove user, I hope you're as excited as we are to hear that it's got a bright future. And if you're not already using Grove, why not check it out? We think you'll love it as much as we do.

Grove isn't dead, it's only resting. We've acquired Grove!{% else %}
