After 11 years and 4 days online, the IJDb has shut down. It has been an absolute pleasure to run such a popular website for so long. I'd like to take this opportunity to try to thank the great many people that have helped, encouraged, hosted and inspire. In no particular order, Scott Seltzer, Tarim, Mini, Dave Barnes, Jay Linn, The Void, Luke Burrage, Jon Relf, Jon Kennett, The Void, Nils Cox, Stefan Paridaen, JiBe, Marco Paoletti, Guy Berman, Dani, Masaki Nishikawa, Rafael Porelorti, Matteo Vegetti, and finally a special thank you to Little Paul who has been a great help during the shutdown process.
Thank you to Rich Kohut for putting together this fantastic video:
I am really pleased that the news of the IJDb shutdown has resulted in the launch of a whole raft of promising looking websites. In no particular order:
As you can see, these sites pick up much of what the IJDb has left behind. The one notable exception is the great many articles that the site hosted (and were translated into about 7 different languages). Hopefully someone will find a use for these!
If you want to use any of the IJDb content, feel free. It will shortly be made available to everyone (with personal details removed), under a suitable licence.
Thank you all for being a part in this site.
Regards, Colin E.
If you've got any comments, queries, or just want to tell me how ace you thought the IJDb was - drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.orgBy the way, I may have grown tired of running the IJDb, but I do still enjoy juggling. I am off to San Francisco shortly and very much looking forward to meeting up with some jugglers while I am there!
