Web rings were very linear and a lot like following a path through a forest with no idea what would be next but knowing only that it would be related to the other Web sites. At least with a search list of links one can see info on more than one site at a time.
I would even prefer a visual topic model/mindmap UI such as found in IRIS.ai or Brain.
Amazon links one to related books that is close to being a Web ring but Arxiv doesn't even have topic folders with human readable thumbnails or title lists.

That is a great idea. A mindmap like GUI instead of a webring.
