Researchers are working on a way to eliminate broken hyperlinks. It looks like a pretty cool method, but it still won’t fix my biggest problem with broken links, which is newspapers that rotate their stories every few days. For example, there are tons of great stories in the New York Times, but I avoid linking to them because they take most of them down after one day. The Washington Post keeps them for two weeks, still not enough in my opinion. On the other hand CNN and Salon keep their stories around forever.
