On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

If you need to access any data, email me: subbu at newsrack.in

The notable and bold Colorado oil and gas reform underway is a game changer, shifting Colorado’s focus from energy extraction to public health as the primary concern.  But what remains the same is a system of opposition where there’s always a winner and a loser.  What if we could look at the value of the natural world without pitting economic outcomes against environmental health?
