Der “Erfinder” des World Wide Web (WWW) bloggte zwei Jahren in seinem MIT-Blog – und meint: “Blogging is great” – und weist in einem Beitrag auf die Qualität von Links hin. Viele Websites und Blogger verlinken sich – meist sehr schnell – untereinander, um bei den Suchmaschinen besser gelistet zu werden.
People have, since it started, complained about the fact that there is junk on the web. And as a universal medium, of course, it is important that the web itself doesn’t try to decide what is publishable. The way quality works on the web is through links.
It works because reputable writers make links to things they consider reputable sources. So readers, when they find something distasteful or unreliable, don’t just hit the back button once, they hit it twice. They remember not to follow links again through the page which took them there. One’s chosen starting page, and a nurtured set of bookmarks, are the entrance points, then, to a selected subweb of information which one is generally inclined to trust and find valuable.
Leider ist dieser Beitrag Tims letzter Blogbeitrag (November 2006). Ob er Opfer von “Formular Spammern” wurde (wie er selber in einem anderen Beitrag einräumt)?
