'There you go,' said Sir Tim Berners-Lee

He is unhappy with //.

I'm grateful for his invention, and I like the quirkiness of //. Besides, with bookmarks and control C, who needs to type an address? I've left it out of footnotes, too since .com or .org are instantly recognizable.

More important, Sir Tim seemed to support governments placing more information on the web - bills about healthcare, say, or the Lisbon Treaty, so voters could read and analyze them, and hey, maybe our MPs and represenatives could, too. "In an almost unprecedented display of contempt for Parliament, the Government will tomorrow ask MPs to approve the EU treaty before they have a proper chance to examine what it is they are voting on" Christopher Booker, Telegraph, January 08.
