For many years I managed my photos and my photo a day project using a brilliant photo CMS called Koken. It seemed to fall into limbo a few years ago with no updates and no info about the status of the project. It changed ownership was about all I knew but I kept on using it as it integrated well with Lightroom and was also exactly what I was looking for in a CMS.
About a year ago I decided to take down the site as without updates it was not the best idea to have an unpatched site publicly accessible.
When rebuilding this site recently I noticed that there is an update on koken.me from the original creators of the project that sheds some light on its current status and what happened the project.
It’s a shame something like this happened to a great project but hopefully the current owners will release it back to Todd, Brad and Lauren so either it can be revived, repurposed or even rehomed with new owners.
