Tracking paths through the web

Clive Thompson worries that he loses the paths that get him to information on the web and, in so doing, loses 'cognitive value'. Personally, I'm not sure how much value is lost in a string of un-processed links. Usually there's a way back to things you've skimmed. On the other hand I like the idea of tracking (with their agreement) other people's paths, with their agreement, as in reading.am.
