Norm on Names

From a post from Mark Baker, there's a fine post from Norm Walsh on names that you all should read - my favorite quote:

Contrary to what you may believe, there is nothing about the “http” URI scheme that requires use of the “http” protocol. And even where the “http” protocol is used, there's nothing about it that requires access to any particular machine.

On your desktop, your web browser may return things from its cache without ever hitting the web.
