Bruce Perens's news and comment site Technocrat.net
has shut down for the second time (it was off the air 2001-2004). A message was left at the site explaining the move: "When it became evident that Technocrat was un-viable as a business, I found that I did not wish to keep supporting the site as a hobby. Certain elements of the community that developed here, unfortunately, creep me out. At the end I faced the decision of asking for donations to keep the site running, or letting it die, and it became clear to me that I'd feel better if it would just die.
