"The hyperlink is still one of the greatest constructions of the digital era. With a click, the user is portalled away any distance from the simplest turn of a page to fringe worlds untouched for decades. It is only fitting a web-fort such as this would collect and house noteworthy hyperlinks for preservation and reference.

"The Architect has categorized the list and included annotations for each hyperlink, so your trip along the Fiber-Optic Freeway has direction and purpose."
