Getting back to what's important.

"World Wide Web" has three syllables.

"WWW" has nine.

That's like the worst acronym ever.

Think about it the next time you hear someone spell out a URL on a TV or radio ad. We could have used any prefix imaginable to identify webservers in a domain, and the standard we settled on is "www" (as opposed to, say, "web").

This offends my sensibilities, and I'm counting on you to avenge them.

Ready?

From now on, "WWW" is voiced; not spelled. It's a long drawling "W" sound.

"WWW" rhymes with "Duh"


We may need T-Shirts and Bumper Stickers to remind people.
