The source document URL from each of the 104 quotes composing the index of issues was recorded and listed into a spreadsheet. Duplicate URLs were identified in the spreadsheet and eliminated from the list using the “duplicate values” tool in Microsoft Excel, leaving a total of 71 URLs. The spreadsheet was then saved as a “.csv” file and imported into Hyphe. Using the default settings in Hyphe, we then crawled each website (what Hyphe terms “web entities”) in the list. The output produced a list of 528 web entities. Each discovered web entity was manually curated to remove irrelevant web entities to the “e-waste debate” (e.g. advertisements, social media, search engines, etc.). Of the 528 web entities, a total of 361 web entities remained after the curation process. The interconnectivity of all 361 web entities was visualized in a network diagram revealing which web entities are linked with one another through citation or web linking.
