About Gone News

We live in a world where everyday a giant number of news articles are created, roughly skimmed by a number of readers from no one to everyone, and abandoned after weeks. To me, that sounds like we're literally writing history down, but just to dispose those history pieces weeks later.

That's not how things should move. We suffer from lack of written history when we look back. But now in this age of internet, though we see a much wider definition of newsworthy, meaning more things with no much significance was attached to at that moment (but later might be important) is documented, we're not preserving them, or indexing them in a chronic order for easier access.

And that's what Gone News is trying to achieve. Take you time, browse some news from days gone. Any ideas on collecting more old news, please contact me on Twitter so we can work together to index more from past.
