I’ve help develop a couple of websites lately and I’ve been bitten once again by dated material found on the Internet. I seriously hate it when you are doing research and you encounter what you think is a great page with pertinent data only to find out you based all your research on ‘yesterday’s’ technology/views/opinions. I guess I’ve been running out of patience to do thorough work in some aspects. Yet, I do think that anyone that attempts to share information, they should put it into context or at the very least put a date on their article/comment.
On this blog, I’ve been a little re-miss as well. I’ve taken the easy route and just have the blogging software display the date that the article was published or edited. I think I’ll need to do more than that as a vanity search has proven that people have been reproducing info from this site (thank you btw for stopping by and I do hope you found the information useful) and basically the reproduce information was ‘archaic’ as one commenter mentioned. Now I’m not saying that I have any control of what people do with the information I post – but I think I’ll make more of a concerted effort to inform all readers that the information on this site has a limited usefulness lifespan.
