Local internet guru Adrian Holovaty is pulling the plug on the much-beloved, much-used Chicagocrime.org. After February 15, the info trove will be no more; instead, it'll redirect to the appropriate parts of EveryBlock, Holovaty's latest venture. He writes on his blog,
As we developed EveryBlock, we kept chicagocrime.org firmly in our minds — this new thing we were making had to be a superset, an expansion, a significant step forward. So there's almost nothing you could do on the old chicagocrime.org that you can't do on EveryBlock. And, unlike chicagocrime.org, which was always a side project, EveryBlock has a team of four people improving it full-time, meaning we have the resources to add features, such as e-mail alerts (just added yesterday), that chicagocrime.org never had. We hope EveryBlock is a worthy successor.
We do, too. [Via Whet]
