Web Content Debt is the New Technical Debt

I’d be curious what your thoughts are with respect to redundant publishing as a kind of debt. For example, you posted this article at your website too, http://userslib.com/web-content-debt-is-the-new-technical-debt/. You’re not the only one who does this, of course, thousands of people using Medium do, and it’s a common practice in media publishing too outside of Medium. It seems to me it only serves to flood a message or brand, thus adds to the flotsam and jetsam of the web. Isn’t this a kind of debt we want to avoid? It also serves to disperse, thus duplicate, discussion, which is yet another kind of debt, as demonstrated by the fact two different people posted each of your articles in our community without knowing the other had done so:

When I think about vital information as digital archival and preservation, to say nothing of energy conservation, I think redundant publishing is a problem.

Another angle on it, http://www.vice.com/read/how-digital-storage-is-changing-the-way-we-preserve-history, and what I hope will be some discussion in place there, https://plus.google.com/u/0/112670651692744005384/posts/Wh2sfZL2QqM.
