isoHunt is finally shutting down after seven years of lawsuits.

Today Gary Fung opened a new website which is simple WordPress site with only one posting:

It’s sad to see my baby go. But I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 10.5 years of isoHunt has been a long journey by any business definition, and forever in Internet startup time. It started as a programming hobby in my university days that has become so, so much more. It’s been a learning experience beyond what I imagined. I’ve done the best I could push the social benefits of BitTorrent and file sharing, the searching and sharing of culture itself, but it’s time for me to move on to new software ideas and projects.
There’s so much I want to write about. Some I want to take time writing about, some I can’t talk about. Since someone from Hollywood got the news out of our pending shutdown already, I just want to get a bit of my side of the story out with this post.
FYI, this is the last part of our lawsuit I haven’t talked about yet. Our SCOTUS petition.
I’m working on new projects, so this is not a good bye, but announcing a new beginning for yours truly. You’ll be hearing from me soon. Stay in touch with me on garyfung.ca.”
Earlier this year, it seemed that Fung had some other ideas for isoHunt, unfortunately he will no longer be able to use the site address… I am sure he will be bringing us some interesting things in the future though!

“For the next 10 years, I’m imagining a reboot of isoHunt. From a mostly passive search engine, to a new system where you the consumer can be active participants in bringing creators on board, and you can frictionlessly contribute to the creators.”
