I was excited by the addition of a notice to Xanadu.com announcing plans
for running a Permastore for the WWW.
One thing I have noticed recently is that much of the most informative
content on the WWW is on school servers (colleges, universities, even
high school and lower), and of course as soon as the owner of the
account graduates/leaves, the account is closed and that content is
gone. There are tons of broken links that used to point to students'
(and faculty's) old personal web pages.
And the incredibly short half life of WWW pages in general -- especially
personal pages, but also newspapers and other big companies that for
some reason re-organize their whole site system every few years or
moths -- is very distressing.
1. What are some ideas we could come up with for helping school and
university students and employees in particular (as one of the more
prolific subsets of web publishers, and creators of fairly quality
stuff) make more permanent web pages?
2. Is Xanadu.com's permastore project going anywhere?
