Top Ten Internet Mistakes

Oops! Top Internet Blunders of All Time

Last week, Time magazine posted a list of the Top 10 Internet Blunders of All Time. My favorite is Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the British computer scientist credited with creating the Internet in 1989, says he added the annoying forward slashes to "http://" on a whim! He also admits if he could change one thing about the Internet now, he'd get rid of the slashes.

Also on the list of blunders? Apple mistakenly posting an episode of Stargate Atlantis to the iTunes store in 2007 four weeks before it was scheduled to air; AOL releasing users' search histories to the public, having to apologize by saying, "This was a screw-up," and a small code error in Sweden (just last week) that took down the entire country's .se domain.

Have you ever made a major technology or Internet blooper? Share it in the comments below.
