ONLINE ARTICLES

The focus is on two online articles.

 

1. "The Cobweb: Can the Internet be Archived,"by Jill Lepore,

The New Yorker (1/26/2015) in print, page 36;   re:  The Internet Archive: archive.org; The Wayback Machine; and The Vanished Library. 
Excerpt: 

"...link rot, ...content drift, ...and reference rot... "
"The footnote, a landmark in the history of civilization, took centuries to invent and to spread. It has taken mere years nearly to destroy." 

In addition to engaging in conversation about the content, we will also discuss various ways participants accessed and annotated while reading.
