Web Credibility — Appearances from Beyond the Grave!

One of my long-standing complaints is about websites that aren’t dated, that announce events with dates but and not years, and that aren’t updated.

I was visiting my father who’s a long-time Stephen Ambrose fan (and not exactly cognitively what he was) and who was reading one of Ambrose’s books, and didn’t know that Ambrose had died. On my web-using cameraphone, I did a Google search on “Stephen Ambrose died” and the following was the first listing — http://www.casenet.com/people/stephenambrose.htm

Stephen Ambrose Dies
