They took the “I” out of internet

If developing written content (for web or anything else) is part of your job, you probably know what a styleguide is, and you likely know that UTMB ascribes to a slightly customized version of what’s dictated by the Associated Press guide, the AP Stylebook. The guides outlines a standard set of rules for when to use commas, what gets capitalized, which abbreviations are ok (or is it OK?), preferred spellings, (note use of illegal Oxford comma) and so on.

The wordy wizards at AP just announced that effective June 1, “internet” and “web” will cease to be capitalized. It’s the dawn of a new day.
