A collaborative research site, collecting and organising facts from the corporate media. Data used to be publicly exportable, but that feature is no longer available. The site is famous for its very detailed 9/11 timeline by Paul Thompson.

Started: 2001

In its own words:
"To provide a means for members of civil society to monitor the activities of powerful entities, such as governments, large corporations, and wealthy and influential individuals."


Importance

History Commons has a pretty high threshold for inclusion, giving it a high reputation for reliability. Compared to Wikispooks, it is more wedded to commercially-controlled media. In this respect it is similar to Wikipedia, but it is not subject to the same censorship, so it has details about a number of events such 2001 Mexican legislative assembly attack, which are completely missing on Wikipedia. If you are creating a new page here, it is good to include a reference to historycommons if one is available.

Activity

As of September 2016, the site appears to be semi-dormant; fatal errors are being attended to, but new material was no longer being added. The site's most recent tweet, from 6 January 2014, was a request for funds and the main site features an "urgent" request for funds.[1] The site remains readable, however, though the last edit was made in July 2016.[2]
