    I agree with need of keeping it going.  I believe DARPA would gladly
    give it to someone to keep running.  However, DARPA wouldn't supply any
    new funding to keep up the care and feeding.  I don't now if any of the
    US Government Agencies involved in the Semantic Web would be interested
    or not.
    Happy New Year, everyone.

    At one point I think W3C/MIT and BBN and DARPA came to some
    agreement about keeping online in perpetuity. I don't have
    the details handy, but I intend to look into it.
    Austin, I know you have experience keeping stuff online for
    a long time; are you interested in hosting it?
