Open ⇒ Closed

As I announced earlier in the week I’ve just switched off OpenCorporations.org. Rather than shutting off public access to the data entirely, however, I’ve created a new site: at ClosedCorporations.org you can access an archival (and “memorial”) version of the site, with the data frozen in time at November 19, 2008.

I’ve also written a history of the OpenCorporations project for posterity.

This whole thing kinda sucks. Really a shame that the data is publicly available but can’t be remixed into something more useful.

great story and kudos on building opencorporations! just too bad it didn’t work out and unfortunately another example of the government thinking of business before peoples rights if you ask me…it happens all time here in nova scotia! cheers :)
