Lost in Cyberspace

The Art of the Possible blog has disappeared. Google doesn’t have a cache of it, and the Internet Archive doesn’t either. I don’t have final copies of any of the essays I wrote for it – and they’re some of my favourites. Help! Any suggestions? (I’ve written to the blog host, but I’ve had trouble reaching him in the past.)

    I send another comment with more links (probably the google.pt still has the cache) but I suppose that it was stoped by the filter or something like that.

    I saved the posts: Poison As Food, Poison As Antidote, Chomsky’s Augustinian Anarchism, The Real Meaning of 9/11, Those Who Control the Past Control the Future, History of an Idea, and Regulation: The Cause, Not the Cure, of the Financial Crisis.

    They are word documents on my computer. I hope this helps out.

    Miguel — At first I was going to say that that link doesn’t work; it just goes straight to the filler page. But then it turns out that if I click stop before it finishes going to the filler page, and then click text, I get something. So I’ll have to try that. Can you email me the other links? Thanks!

    James — Yes, if you could send those to me at berserkrl@yahoo.com that would be terrific. Thanks!

    On it! They include some comments by Kevin Carson.

    I’d appreciate it too if there is a link which preserves everybody’s writing.

    It seems to have come back!

    It’s all working fine for me.

    Speaking of bad things happening to good blogs, Dr. Long, your RSS feed isn’t working. I don’t think the problem is just with my Google Reader, because when I clicked the “Entries RSS” link in your sidebar here, I get a blank page. I haven’t seen anything in the feed since Nov. 23.

    I emailed Lawrence Krubner and he put it back up last night. (But for how long I’m not sure; anyone who wants to save anything from it should probably do so now ….)

    To anonymo — did you see this post of mine?

    Someone should mirror it. Or check into why it isn’t available at the Internet Archive & see if that can be rectified.

    I have copies of some of the posts, but if the site is going to be taken down I hope someone can get a copy of the database first.

    You probably don’t need it any more, but I’ve got textfiles of several of your posts. I saved most of mine to hard drive when I found out AOTP was going down.

    My question is, how is it that Roderick didn’t have copies of what he wrote?

    Why is AOTP going down?
