April 18, 2000: It's amazing how quickly the net evolves.. While I liked the impulse behind A Standard for Site Organization, the specific suggestion (standard directory names for common site sections) seemed downright archaic to me: Why wouldn't you just have a standard XML site-description file that pointed to site resources, a la deepleap? But then I noticed the article's from 1998. It makes me want some sort of ambient date representation, like documents that start to generate a smell as they decay.
