Link Rot

Finished a good long read on link rot from The Atlantic by a former colleague, Jonathan Zittrain, that went far more in depth on work recently covered on CBC’s Spark podcast. Zittrain in his usual fashion not only sets the stage and quantifies the stakes, he surveys some of the work on solutions. I think this is important now more than ever, we will need some better solutions to continue fighting this pandemic and future ones and to reflect on this unique point in our history. https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2021/06/the-internet-is-a-collective-hallucination/619320/
