Upcoming is Coming Back!

Andi Baio sold Upcoming.org to Yahoo in 2005. Last year, Yahoo shut it down and decided a few months ago to sell the url back to Andi. Now, Andi is set to bring it back! Yes, please!

Upcoming was a collaborative event calendar focused on interesting arts and tech events around the world. Entirely curated by the community, Upcoming surfaced weird and wonderful events that usually fell under the radar of traditional event listings from newspapers and local weeklies.

Definitely supporting this Kickstarter Campaign.

And, can we all please learn from this?

  1. Hi,

    upcoming.org is actually the Domain Name and not a URL.

    upcoming.org was bought and developed in 2003 by Andy Baio, then sold to Yahoo in 2005 for an undisclosed amount.

    A URL is a Uniform Resource Locator, an example would be;
    upcoming.org/websites/design/logos/

    Hope this helps,

    Howie
