    1. Even if the original webpage disappears, you can often use this informationto locate an archived version using the Wayback Machine, a project of theInternet Archive that preserves a record of websites: https://archive.org/web/.

      It would be useful to suggest here:

      Ideally one's note taking applications would automatically archive web pages to the Internet Archive as you take notes from them. This means that if they should disappear in the future, you'd have recourse to a useful and workable back up.

    1. Suppose Google were to change what’s on that page, or reorganize its website anytime between when I’m writing this article and when you’re reading it, eliminating it entirely. Changing what’s there would be an example of content drift; eliminating it entirely is known as link rot.

      We don't talk about content drift very much. I like that some sites, particularly wiki sites, actually document their content drift in diffs and surface that information directly to the user. Why don't we do this for more websites? The Wayback machine also has this sort of feature.

    1. The page will appear as it was at the time the snapshot was recorded. The links on the page may or may not work depending on whether or not those URLs were also recorded by the Wayback Machine. If you find that an internal page link does not work, try entering that URL into the Wayback Machine search bar at the top of the page.The search bar within the LEARN page will not work. If this is a page that you intend to access in the future, you may want to bookmark the Wayback Machine URL so you can easily return to it later.

    1. udell.roninhouse.com no longer lives on the web. This annotation anchored initially to a locally-spoofed udell.roninhouse.com whose index.html was a copy of the oldest snapshot captured by Wayback, in December 1998.

      That's the setup for the scenario I want to test. Let's say an annotation had been made for udell.roninhouse.com back then, or sometime before the site went dark. Then I visit udell.roninhouse.com, which 404s. I want the annotation client to:

      • detect the 404
      • look up the dead url in wayback
      • retrieve a copy
      • anchor its annotations to the wayback ghost of the page
