    ICANN to Ban Use of "WWW"

    A recent study showing millions hours of lost productivity, has prompted the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to ban the use of "www" in domain names.

    Mandy Crestor"Requiring employees to type 'WWW' cost companies over $25 billion last year," said ICANN representative Emil Scharnsdorf. "The average Internet surfer takes two seconds to type 'www' and visits 125 sites a day, add in typos like "qqq" and "ww," then wave your hands over your head three times and you're at $25 billion."

    it take time to retype..

    btw.. users can type in the url without http://www. and most of the time browser will process it and go to the correct website..

    I never type in the ww, neither the http:// but I know some people who do it (actually everyone :P). I can understand that it will cost people money if this happens so much. But that it would be such a massive losage for companies is incredible. But still, no one ever said something about it before,....

    No, it has not been implemented yet, and it will probably be some time before it can be implemented.

    The supposed loss of productivity, IMO, is just warping statistics and numbers and using them out of context. Honestly, there are so many unforseen events that can happen in one day at work that can take much more time than having to retype 'www' - frequent washroom breaks due to bad cafeteria food, someone stops by for a quick chat, secretary misplaces something or screws up something, photocopier runs out of paper, boss gets pissed off, etc. Sure, implementing this change may help to save some money or boost productivity a little, but the real productivity-related problems are not being addressed here.

    Yeah, what you say makes sense. I totally agree.
