see you later, aggregator

And in happier news...this is the kind of idea that used to make me very bullish about the internet, and still does. Vlado of kekoc fame has helped set up the new site, launched today, which aims to aggregate information about garage sales on in every state. Listing your upcoming garage sale for seven days is free. It's a nifty idea, provided enough people make use of it.
Speaking of content aggregators, albeit one of a different kind, what's happened to Living in Australia? I had only just discovered the beauty of blog aggregators like this one when it mysteriously went silent. Was it something barista said (his post dated May 31 is the last one up, and it's titled "abandoned and dystopic")?
