PostThe Inventor of the Web Is Really Sorry About Destroying So Many Trees

I am Sorry

Tim Berners-Lee, the guy who usually gets the cred for inventing the world wide web, says there is one thing he’d do differently if he did it all again: He’d dump the double slash that follows http in web addresses.

He apparently laments all the trees and time that’s been killed by people having to type and print out http:// instead of just http: and whatever the address is. I’m pretty sure, though, that typing out all those slashes isn’t quite the biggest waste of time on the internet, so I hope he doesn’t beat himself up too badly at night.
