Out of the Blue

As February draws to a close, I want to give the broadcast professionals of the world something to work on for next year. Look at the way the month is spelled, and take note of the "r" in the middle there. Not the one at the end; most of you have that one down cold. No, I'm talking about the first one, which makes the pronunciation of the word "February," not "Febuary." You have 11 months to practice that so hopefully we can get some progress on this for February 2010.

February Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Altair.
Speedway Tower Defense.
Slammings.
Links: Inside The Inboxes of 15 Fictional Villains.
Stories: NBC orders Jerry Seinfeld reality series.
Secret Lives of Comic Store Employees.
Auction: Up, up and away- Rare Superman comic for sale. Thanks Digg.
Images: Funny Faces of Senior Citizens Playing Wii.
Media: Elevator. NSFW.
VCR Hack.
Flying car reaches new milestone. Thanks Slashdot.

Ha! Good catch mag.

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the www, said in hindsight he regretted several things:

Web creator regrets addressing system

Tim Berners-Lee has said that if he had his time again Web addresses would be simpler, and arguably more logical, than the http://www.name.com we are all familiar with.

In an interview with the BCS (British Computer Society), the inventor of the World Wide Web said that he would scrap the double-slash, simply because, as he says, 'there's no need for it'.

He also said that he would have put domain names the other way round and drop the full points and unnecessary 'www'. The example above would simply become http:com/name/.
