Linked: How to spell 'Internet'

One of my first majors in college was journalism. And as a journalism major, you become intimately familiar with “AP style.” The Associated Press has published the definitive guidelines for newspaper writing for decades, but it’s influence spreads beyond just news publications. I’ve used AP style at pretty much every company I’ve worked for.

One of the things I hate about AP style is the capitalization of “Internet” and “Web” as proper nouns. But thankfully those days are over and, starting in June, the official AP recommendation is to use internet and web in lower case. I’m very happy about this, and I’m completely aware of how geeky that is.

Five Thirty Eight has a great little article showing that maybe we’ve already started the transition.
