Citation Problems on the Web

Citation Problems on the Web

Discovered a website webcitation.org.

This is nice if you often needs to cite links. Citing links, especially in academic contexts, is problematic due to link rot. The destination link become a dead link, or it may change content to something you didn't expect, or the domain owner can change hands and all things fly (e.g. sold to porn sites).

So, it comes Webcitation.org. Apparently, Wikipedia is starting to use it. I might too.
