Yup the blog is now gone. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
If you are really want, you can try and find the content on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine 
Happy preservating.

This is the end

I am officially concluding my active participation in Library Preservation 2.  I was pretty sure this was going to be the case when I announced its hiatus, but wanted to give myself a few months to think it over.

Working on this blog has been a great treat for me, but it, along with my related projects – 5 Days of Preservation tumblr, and the Preservation Imperative podcast (which I am also stopping) – were all done on my free time and whatever work time I “borrowed”. I am no longer driven to think about preservation day and night.

I will keep this site online for a while because people do keep visiting it every day. (I don’t want to take it down only to have some Russian hucksters “resurrect” it a year later like happened to my first blog.)

I really enjoyed taking the time to reflect and ponder ideas and issues and writing my quirky - and some generously said "thoughtful" - responses to them. I am continuing to do this, just not around preservation topics.

Thanks for everything.

Library Preservation 2 is on hiatus for an indefinite duration. Go out and enjoy the world.
