I recently received an email for the admin department of Boliven (http://www.boliven.com/
) that they are going to close there website during this week.
To me, it was a fantastic website. I often used it for my patent analysis as there were few a very interesting tools in it . The coverage of the database was also quite comprehensive and personally i really like the auto generation of flash graphs.
Moreover, it was a good website for networking as well. One can locate any member according to technology or college or school.
Well, if a website who has attracted 100,000 unique monthly visitors and over 6,000 registered members was doing pretty good. But founder and President of Bolevin, Thomas D Lehrman, has revoked the website as he said that they have fallen short of operational and financial goals.
Its sad. Hope to find similar substitute soon !
If you have something to share, please let me know.
