Gurdjieff Internet Guide was started on the 7th of August in 2002 ( which was my 60th birthday), and retired after ten years on the 7th of August 2012, when I became 70 years old. What you experiences on the site is "life after death" of the site, as the number of visitors is not going down, but keeping steadily at the reasonable level of just under 10 000 visits a month. In fact, it is not I, but the visitors, who keep the site going!
Against all odds, it was meant to give an idea of the Gurdjieff Work on the internet focusing on what is happening in it, particularly in our time, and without the hush of a "secret teaching". This has been achieved with interviews, articles, videos, book reviews, event listings, forums and other material related to the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff.
