Comments on "The Graveyards of the Internet"

Yeah, it can be a shock to hit all the links on someone's blogroll--maybeyour own--and see how many blogs don't exist anymore. Not just blogs, either. I've followed Google to a lot of links that weren't there anymore. It should be obvious that non-physical sites that run on personal enthusiasms and unsteady servers can disappear in an instant. We keep forgetting, though.

I rather took matters to an extreme with my Unknown Composers Page. When people wanted me to link to their own pages devoted to unknown composers, I usually said, "no thank you, but if you let me I'll put your information, with all attributions to you intact, on a subpage on my own site." That way the information would always be there as long as my page continued. Kind of like the aphorism, "Put all your eggs in one basket -- and watch that basket!"
