Links, and the web

For the past couple months I've been using a link page here on my web server to maintain my bookmarks. It makes me grumpy I've had to do that, but for whatever reason the powers that be at the various web browser companies decided that we didn't need bookmarks anymore. I can barely remember what I had for breakfast, so URLs are a hopeless dream, so I had to create my own alternative. It's funny thinking about how optimistic we were about the future back when the web was going to be created by all of us, and tools to make everything easy were going to democratize the web. Instead the web is perhaps an even more opaque place than it was two decades ago.
