On hyperlinks...

So, I was reviewing my journal recently and I noticed old posts and old links from years ago, many which no longer work...

There's the part of me that wants to go back, annotate several of the posts, and do the hard -- sometimes impossible -- task of repairing the links.

And then there is the part of me who looks at it all and wonders whether doing so is, in some sense, a disservice to today, if not to back then.

Journals are ephemera, and some links are perhaps best left broken.
