New Kickstarter Project Wants to Salvage Content from Defunct Travel Blogs

Kickstarter corner: a new crowdfunding effort hopes to create an online archive of content from defunct travelers’ blogs. “TravelArk is a place where users can import their Traveler Profile and all personal travel blog content so that your adventures can continue to live on the web or find a new blogging home. All proceeds from this Kickstarter will go toward Amazon AWS hosting services related to the site. The initial amount is expected to cover the AWS fees related to importing participating members’ data and then run the site for about 3-5 years.” The fundraising goal is $3000, rather modest especially if you consider that’s estimated to run the site for 3-5 years.
