Back in the day, when networks were private, gated communities that you had to pay a fee to enter, you could get around them with single-word navigation. Want to view the news in AOL? Type “news.” Crazy about rugby? Just type the word.
Then came the interweb with its dub-dub-dub and dot this-and-that, elements which really offer little pragmatic benefit.
Well, OpenDNS is kicking it old skool. They’ve introduces a shortcuts service that enables you to configure and browse the interweb likes it’s your own private CompuServe. One word network navigation is back in style. Nice. The w on my keyboard is breathing a sigh of relief.
