Tired: static linking for software libraries.
Wired: static linking for web pages.

For example, tech blogger Gwern keeps a local copy of almost all externally linked web pages so they will still be readable decades later. gwern.net/Design Perhaps more people should do that.

@niconiconi my static site generator (github.com/betodealmeida/nefel) calls archive.org to save externally linked pages for the same reason. It also calls archive.org to save the main page and the post page every time there's a new post.

It also downloads external images, replacing the links with local ones. The goal is the same: persistence.

We know we are doomed when PDFs are much more readable and portable than webpages.
