Down the memory hole...

Remember Russ Kick? Remember the Memory Hole?

Does anyone know what happened to the memory hole? Did it get taken down? Insidious reasons, perhaps?

The wikipedia page doesn't say when/why it got taken down, but thememoryhole.org link is dead. The last post on the internet archive was from October 27, 2009.

Russ Kick tweets (last post: April 2010).

Appropriate results from site search on disinfo.com, his publisher. Their contact form.

His book blog – August '09.

Recent mention of Kick's work by Denver Post.

Other Kick blogs: 1, 2. (Both from '06, so not entirely responsive, but one has a P.O. box.)

Internet archive for his former site.

Response by poster: I weep for the loss of this site. We need the memory hole now as much as ever. I suppose WikiLeaks is the new watchdog site?
