Atlantic Free Press Closing Doors
by Richard Kastelein
Dear Readers: It's been six years and over 13,000 articles published by some 250 of the world's finest politically progressive writers - some 20 per cent with Ph.D.s. 
 
It's been a labour of love for myself, doing my thing to help educate people to ideas that I believe needed to be shared - and some 2.5 million people read articles on this site over the years.
 
In 2011 Atlantic Free Press won a Computerworld Honors Laureate for Innovation -  honoured for visionary application of IT to promote positive social, economic and educational change, including category co-winners from NASA and Duke University.
 
It's a fitting last act for Atlantic Free Press. And I say "finale" because I can no longer afford the time to dedicate to AFP with a young family and a career in technology that's just become to big a part of my life to pull the time needed to run this site pro bono.
 
Thanks to all those who helped donate over the years - but this project still cost me money in server bills. I was just not able to make it a commercial viability.
 
I will of course leave the site up for posterity. If anyone is interested, feel free to contact me.
 
Best
