Ad Bard is Shutting Down

Filed under

Web

Ad Bard was a breath of fresh air in the already crowded advertising networks arena lead by behemoths like Google Adsense. In 2009 when Ad Bard network first came into existence, FSF proudly proclaimed, "The Free Software Community now has an ethical alternative to ad networks that promote proprietary software." Ad Bard was a truly promising venture. But it's all going to end in another month or so. Ad Bard is finally shutting down.

Along with the Ad Bard earnings report for May 2011 came this announcement, "Thank you for your participation in the FLOSS-focused Ad Bard Network. We regret to inform you that we have decided to shut down the network on July 1st, 2011."
