Web Citation Archive

The blogging world is an interestingly dynamic place ... sometimes a page would vanish moments after you would mention it in a blog post :) Google Cache might be a short term solution, but you could use a much better tool: Webcite gives you the ability to store a snapshot of a web page at the time you've cited it.

  2. Not really, they have different purposes. Internet Archive does a periodic crawl of the Internet (like Google), allowing you to go back in time and see how things evolved (I've also used it to get pretty old course descriptions from our previous web site :). The WebCite allows you to capture a page at the exact moment when you cite it.
