Subject: What does Tim Berner-Lee regret?

Hi Dave-- Tim Berners-Lee gives important warning about govs tracking user habits on the web, and also, at the end of the piece, tells us a couple of his regrets : "Among his regrets was starting Web addresses with http:// as the two slashes were redundant, leading to billions of wasted keystrokes."

"Another regret was the way web addresses were constructed. In retrospect it would have made more sense to start with the most general elements such as countries or organizations -- for instance using ch/cern/info instead of info.cern.ch as at present, he said. "
