Removing Obsolete Information

The Internet permits information to be up-to-the-second fresh, but it has no mechanism to ensure obsolete information is removed or updated. It does not even have a mechanism to ensure all information is dated. With a hardcover book, the pages dog-ear and yellow and there is a publication date. On the Internet everything superficially looks equally up-to-date. Internet documents, even on close examination, can look more up-to-date that they really are because a small part of them is fresh.
