Ernie follows up the thread on editing blog posts with a discussion on semi-sorta-kinda-permalinks at Dave Winer’s site. It comes as no surprise that Dave edits his posts — he admits as much and has been clear it’s his policy to do so as he sees fit. Update (10/3/03, 10:42pm): Dave left a comment indicating Ernie mistakenly posted two different posts of Dave’s, rather than two versions of the same post. The point remains re: editing, but the example used was evidently not indicative.]
But this begs the question: what the hell is a “permalink” if not a “permanent” “link” to what you said?
Let’s call them ephemeralinks.
Now there’s a term I can get behind.
Please tell me this will get discussed at BloggerCon.
