More Not Less: Don't Let Popularity Decide What's Online

One of the suggestions we hear a lot is to discard pages and sites which don't get a lot of traffic. However, we need to, as a government which serves all of the people, not just most of the people, be very careful of that idea.


Because if popularity decides what's online, you'll never see information about topics like orphan diseases, or a small national park hidden in the Oklahoma/Texas panhandle, etc.


The Internet is still the least exspensive way to share information -- we should focus on sharing more, not less.
