Ghost Sites of the Web

Web 1.0 history, forgotten web celebrities, old web sites, commentary, and news by Steve Baldwin. Published erratically since 1996.

August 31, 2006 Dead, But Well-Preserved is dead - a once popular site for women in the IT professions, is an abandoned, albiet well-preserved cyber-wreck. Although its home page looks up-to-date, it's clear that nobody's updated it for several years.

Check out its "GirlGeek of the Week" section. The last entry was in 2003. Check out its Community area and you'll see that the link to Girlgeek's forum is broken.

This seems insane, given that, according to its "about" page, received a generous grant from the Markel Foundation to keep publishing.

Too bad, because women continue to be under-represented in the IT field, especially at the senior management level. could have done some good, if it hadn't given up the Ghost.
