We began the TP Wire Service as an experiment in February 2005 and went live that April. As we approach the four year mark, we’ve decided that it is time to pursue other experiments. We deeply appreciate the loyalty of our readers, but also understand that technologies have emerged that may be able to serve you as well as this wire service has. To all our community members that have suggested stories (especially Stephen Garner), thank you. We truly enjoyed working on the TP Wire Service project and hope that you found it useful. Today, in honor of Groundhog Day (keeping us mindful of change and fresh starts) is the last day of postings.
