Upcoming.org is back

Andy Baio:

In September 2003, I opened Upcoming.org to the public. And now, 4,941 days later, four years after Yahoo shut it down and deleted everything, Upcoming.org is back — thanks to you.

I’ve been waiting for this since last June. I have the feeling this version will be around a very, very long time. Go grab your account and set up some events. I did.

Upcoming.org Archive

Andy Baio has resurrected a massive amount of Upcoming.org’s first 10 years of event data:

This is a static historical archive more than 7 million events saved from Upcoming’s first ten years. The vast majority of events were saved, and the original URLs for nearly all of them are active again — along with the original venue, watchlist, and comment metadata.

Just to show my age, yes, I had a profile in 2007. Many of those events had such a huge impact on how I view the web.

I’m looking forward to the new Upcoming.org.
