Vital Discussions

Several great bloggers in the last couple years walked away and let all their work disappear without any sense of the importance of archival continuity. It's annoying enough that commercial outlets let news articles expire, but it is truly exasperating to see vital discussions lost forever, as if there was no tomorrow.

All I can say is that I hope others will maintain their URLs so our links to their posts won't die. Maybe if they viewed this form of social exchange as learning houses they wouldn't be so cavalier about dumping the efforts that went into these informal seminars.
