Sources and influences

In the interest of transparency about what sources influence my writing, I’ve bill of materials for the websites that I most frequently cite. I don’t quite know what you can learn from this list, but it might reveal hidden agendas and unconscious bias.

Link rot statistics

Ctrl blog automatically submits all external links to the Internet Archive at the time of publishing. This means that links can be updated to point to the Internet Archive when the original website that published them removes the page.

Currently, 10.7 % of links on Ctrl blog point to the archived version because the original is lost to time.

Link rot is preventable! Ctrl blog acts on and updates links to permanent redirects. The primary reason for link rot is websites that re-architect and change page-addresses without redirecting the old address to the new address. Care for your old URLs if you really need to change them!

Thanks to the Internet Archive for providing its incalculably valuable service. Please consider donating to support its work!

Algorithmic transparency

Domains are scored +1 for the first link in an article, and +0,25 per additional link in the same article. Each link is counted once per article.
