Almost every introduction question about Ruby will include at least one or two links to one of his sites. Examples:
- Is there a tutorial that teaches common Ruby programming idioms used by experienced programmers, but may not be obvious to newcomers?
- Learning Ruby: recommended blogs to read?
- What's the best/easiest GUI Library for Ruby?
With a bit more effort I could probably find more questions with a lot of dead links.
My suggestion for discussion was, what would be a good way to solve dead links in the answers/comments? Not every site _why created has resurfaced somewhere else, but some could be replaced by new links.
But I wanted the discussion to go beyond this specific problem of dead links in the Ruby answers, an automatic solution would be to let the links be scanned in a batch and when found dead be replaced by a Google cache or Wayback Machine version of the page, and perhaps mark it so that the community can replace the link with an alternative?
