Hopes of continuing the open source travel content project Earth.org appear to have come to an end with the site disappearing into the digital ether this week.
The Curse of Tnooz strikes? Within days of Earth.org being featured here the site’s backers have stunned their community of writers and users and suddenly announced operations are over.
Earth.org is beginning a push to hit mainstream audiences as it looks to capture the eyeballs of travellers seeking out new travel-related content.
The fledgling site reckons it will “create a reliable travel guide written by you and like-minded travelers from all over the world”.
On the one hand Earth.org works on the same principle as the well-established WikiTravel system where users add content about destinations and attractions and the wider community edits, enhances or removes.
