About the Hyperlinktionary

Do you think that it is not important to know everything but that one should know where to find the relevant information? Do you find it annoying that you have to browse through so much useless and repetitive hits if you google a particular term you are interested in? Do you think it is much more valuable to interconnect the information and content that is already available than to repeat the same things again and again?

I do. However, many websites and even online journals make very poor use of hyperlinks. The majority of internet articles could just as well be printed on paper. Often I have to resort to Google in order to find for example the original source of information that is being discussed. This is not only dishonest (you may even risk being accused of plagiarism), but also disappointing - especially since it is so easy to create hyperlinks to helpful and relevant information.

It is the goal of the Hyperlinktionary to address these problems.

Every term in the Hyperlinktionary is shortly defined (I aim for only one sentence) and links to the most useful websites are recommended. Finally, there is a link back to the articles that cite a particular term. The dictionary is in its infancy but it will increase in volume and content quickly, I hope. All future content on my blog will refer to Hyperlinktionary entries because I am thereby able to refer you to more than one website that I find relevant and important - if you should be interested. You are most welcome to suggest additional links, send in new entries or provide any sort of feedback or suggestions.
