Tim Ireland: Bloggerheads is back

Update: I just see that The Cartoonist beat me to it :-).

Tim Ireland’s website is back online:

The main weblog of will return soon. In the meantime, I will be addressing the matter of this site’s temporary closure via a purpose-built weblog (link below) – Tim Ireland

Bloggerheads: The Alisher Usmanov Affair

The new site is hosted in the USA, on Google’s Blogger service. Now Google doesn’t really have such a great track record in China, but AFAIK they’re OK in the USA. It’s certainly a better choice than anything hosted in England.

Bloggerheads: The Alisher Usmanov Affair Detailing, investigating and discussing the circumstances that led to the temporary closure of the site (and others) via the actions of Fasthosts, Schillings and Alisher Usmanov

The party begins with Requesting Response from Fasthosts.

This should be fun to watch.


  1. Die nächsten Wochen dürften recht spannend werden.

    Yes, you published it on 13:23, my posting was on 13:55. And I figure you deserve a few extra link anyway for alerting Spreeblick, who is a nice multiplier in the german-speaking blogosphere. I mailed on Sunday (I think), but I guess he didn’t find it interesting or the mail got lost in the spamfolder.

  4. It seems quite a few of the German blogs are simply not interested. I would have thought at least Kantel would write about it. Strange.

    Perhaps the reports are true after all: Bloggers usually find their stories in the mainstream press. This will only spread in the German blogosphere if some German-speaking newspaper writes about it.

    (Ohmygod. Now everybody’s going to mail Heise in the hope of a backlink…)
