Ah. I have now watched the video, and I am pretty clear that old links don't go stale in Google's eyes unless they disappear. For example, geocities pages disappeared, so if you had links from a geocities page, well, your PageRank would be affected by that. But nothing Matt said suggested an older link is less valuable or goes "stale," per se.
