OpenFile has disappeared, but the Poppy File map is still available

OpenFile’s unfortunate end has been written about elsewhere. I don’t have much to say about the situation as it stands (David Topping discusses it well at the link) other than to say that I know what it’s like to be a freelancer and be owed money you need to use to buy groceries. Perhaps unavoidably, the site itself, along with the complete Poppy File project from November 2010, has now gone black. (The project itself, for those just tuning in, is explained here.)

I can’t do anything about the disappearance of the other material (thinking particularly of Liam Maloney’s powerful videos) but I should point out that the actual map has been mirrored for years at this site, and is broken down into submaps here.

(The equivalent First World War map is on Global’s site. At some point I should put them together somehow.)
