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.

I'm all for the bumper stickers. That's where Cafe Press comes in. If they let me get away with this atrocity, they'll let you do yours. (Not that yours in an atrocity.)

And, of course, you have to try to get hold of either "rhymeswithduh.com" or "wwwrhymeswithduh.com", so that you have get your manifesto to the people, and sell your bumperstickers, t-shirts, baby bibs, and whatever else Cafe press lets you design these days.
