A post over on BexHuff got me thinking about syntax. The gist of the post was that DNS is backwards. As they wrote;
Putting directions in that order makes about as much sense as these directions: turn left at reception, go to this company, go to France, then make a right.
Which I guess is true – but then I thought; does anyone really look at URL’s anymore? Isn’t 90% of browsing done via Google? As I commented to BexHuff;
Why have all that bizarre http, www, and slash this and slash that stuff – it’s all counter to user-centricity
So what about it, in this approaching era of semantic web presence, is it time to find a new naming system – or even to go beyond systems and work purely on tags?
