No URL Left Behind? Web Scrub Raises Concern

author: Michelle R. Davis
description: This article should be of interest to anyone using the Department of Education's Web site. "The Department of Education is in the process of a massive overhaul of its Web site to make it easier to use and to remove outdated data - and ensure that material on the site meshes with the Bush administration's political philosophy....Some researchers and government watchdogs say the department's decision to scrap some information based on whether it comports with Bush administration initiatives could set an unsettling precedent. The redesign thus highlights yet another question emerging from new technology: Just what responsibility do political officials have to preserve the products of those who came before, particularly if their predecessors saw the issues in a different light?"
