Fotopedia is shutting down

July 31, 2014 by fotonauts

We are sorry to announce that Fotopedia is shutting down.

As of August 10, 2014, will close and our iOS applications will cease to function. Our community of passionate photographers, curators and storytellers has made this a wonderful journey, and we’d like to thank you for your hard work and your contributions. We truly believe in the concept of storytelling but don’t think there is a suitable business in it yet.[1]

How to Help

Start up a Warrior. Alternatively, the scripts can be run manually as detailed in the source code repositories.

Phase 1 is content discovery. A list of usernames are combed for their IDs of photos, albums, stories etc. Phase 2 is the actual download of photos and pages.
