The demise of G.ho.st: Two years too late

TechCrunch reports that G.ho.st will shut down in two weeks. I extensively reviewed G.ho.st in 2008 after fantastic claims made in the media and by its makers that the online OS was somehow so novel as to contribute even to peacebuilding in the Middle East.

Two years ago I called G.ho.st a sham, destined for failure. It’s a wonder that it lasted so long.
