Longevity, morphology, incept dates

Jaiku is being shut down. So is Dodgeball (also known as Where’s Tantek?). They’re going the way of I Want Sandy, Yahoo Live, Pownce and Ficlets.

But Ficlets is different. Although the name and the URL belong to AOL, all the stories belong to their respective authors—authors like Wil Wheaton. Even better, they’re licensed under Creative Commons attribution, share alike. So Kevin has managed to archive all the stories at a new home.

But don’t think of it as a museum piece. The idea of collaborative short fiction hypertext is just too good.

Ficlets is dead. Long live Ficly.
