Sunlight Labs Archiving As It Shuts Down Thanks to GitHub and Internet Archive

The closure of Sunlight Labs makes me very sad, but I’m impressed with how responsibly it’s being handled. “GitHub has committed to host the Sunlight Labs repository as an open source community project independent of Sunlight Foundation…. Beyond repos, we have loads of content and data we want to preserve. Mark Graham and his team at the extraordinary and audacious Internet Archive are partnering with us over the coming weeks to archive it ALL. From the Wayback Machine for our domains and subdomains, to a special Collection at the Internet Archive for Sunlight’s datasets – they’ll make sure you can still access our information even after Labs is gone.”
