Organizing the Internet

In Chowdhury Chapter 7 he discusses the attempts to organize the Internet. This concept just blows my mind, how can we even begin to attempt to organize something so vast? While I completely understand the need and want to be able to organize and catalog the Internet as we know it today, I also feel as if some parts of it are meant to be temporal. Like art, some web pages may only be meant to exist in a certain amount of time and then just disappear. Should we really be trying to archive something that is meant to be fleeting?
