An ironic death
Ghost Sites, which has marked the death of various websites, weblogs and such, is itself going to the great Internet server in the sky. Too expensive to operate, says site owner Steve Baldwin:
That the chronicler of ghost sites should become a ghost.is, it seems, as poetically ironical as can be expected from a medium that, in the author's opinion, is now a lifeless rustbelt awaiting a massive infusion of spiritual and/or finanincial energy.
This is too bad, as Ghost Sites was informative and fun to read. (Hopefully, he will find acting work in a movie biography of Woodrow Wilson--please see his black and white promo shot here : ) .)
He deserves our thanks for doing something very useful for the Internet.
