One Link To Rule Them All... Posted on 03/19/2002.

Via a mailing list post, our friend Adina (where is that website of yours, hmmm?) points us to a coupla Things Worth Reading. Cory Doctorow's extended mash note to Google, How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love the Panopticon, and a research paper, Self Organization and Identification in Web Communities, which demonstrates the power of The Link, and which has Math and Algorithms, so you know it's all true!
