Comments Comments Off on Blog Maintenance (2/8/2010)

The problem of “link rot” has infected the World Wide Web almost from its inception. This phenomenon is especially troubling for me, since nearly all of my blog articles cite other Web material (mostly media articles). In an effort to deal with this, I’ve decided to use a service called WebCite. It caches Web pages, so they remain available, even if they’re later deleted or lost, the server they were on becomes unavailable, and so on. I plan to include links both to the live article in question, and add in the WebCite link (clearly marked as a cached page).

If you click on a link in one of my blog entries, and don’t get what I’ve described, try the cached version.

Hopefully you’ll agree this will improve this blog and ensure you will be able to see what I’m referring to in my own articles. Thank you.
