Access to Insight going static in January

Postby xinuflux » Sun Oct 27, 2013 2:48 pm

The homepage of accesstoinsight.org mentions it is no longer going to be updated when John Bullitt retires. Does anyone know why a handoff or open-sourcing of the site isn't planned?

I don't know why there isn't a hand-off, but I can think of one possible reason. He may be wanting to protect the site, ensuring it keeps its current focus. A new admin might change the whole focus; or in a worst-case scenario, delete the whole site.

I have thought about the same with the Dhamma Wiki I run. I might make it static too and I imagine like access to insight by that time it should be fairly complete anyway. I might pass it to a bhikkhu or bhikkhuni or just leave it static.

There is enough great info on access to insight to keep us going back there for many years, perhaps decades.

When an author finishes a book it becomes static........this does not preclude some other author from writing one.......isn't all the material on Accesstoinsight free for the copying and couldn't anyone use it as the core for the epilogue of a new book?

Maybe we could get several monks to memorize Accesstoinsight's contents and pass it on as an oral tradition........Dhammanando?

Does anyone know if Thanissaro Bhikkhu keeps translating? Is he published somewhere else now?
