The first app developed by Milk, the lab started by Kevin Rose of Digg fame is closing down. Oink was a place where ratings counted not just for places such as a bar, but for the drinks and food served. However, with 150,000 users in only a few months, it seems that this was seen as a failure and therefore it has to go. Shame!
This is the message on the site that nobody really wanted to see;
Thank you so much to everyone who joined and contributed to Oink. You have been the heart of Oink. We are extremely grateful for all of your effort finding and rating the best things in the places around you. We’ve discovered thousands of awesome pizzas, pastas, coffees, teas… and roller coasters, zoo exhibits, paintings, sculptures, vistas… and sodas, salads, sliders, soups… and so much more.
