Why is it that most/all papers published in Journals and/or as part of conferences never have a date/timetamp attached?
Its rather a bit frustrating to read a paper you've been sent, or had a link for, only to have no idea when/where it was published...
Just Friday I was pointed at an article by Dan Geer - http://www.acmqueue.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=436
Awesome article, but you won't see any real date information on it. January/February Edition on the ACM Queue. Which year? Hmm, can't tell can you, at least not from that page. Hell, the date at the top is the date you loaded the page, not the date of the article. More than a little frustrating.
Ok, rant mode off. The next post will probably be about the article above.
