HTMLGiant to Shut Down on October 24

By Harriet Staff


HTMLGiant is set to close on October 24! Sometimes you just gotta call it a day? Co-founder Gene Morgan writes:

Blake Butler and I started this place because we wanted a hub for all of the writing we love, all of the people we enjoy reading, and to do it with a certain openness that we both appreciate. Along with everyone else that came along with us, we succeeded (and occasionally failed) at that for many years.

October 24th, 2014 will be the last day of operation for Htmlgiant. I’m going to step aside as managing editor effective immediately, and in the next few days I’ll open posting up for nearly everyone that has ever been a part of this site. On October 24th I will disable posting privileges for everyone and leave the site up for as long as we can afford it.

The next few weeks will hopefully be interesting, because if there’s anything this website deserves it’s an uncontrolled flameout.

We looked to HTMLGiant a lot over the past few years. Here's to an uncontrolled flameout.
