After reading this very informative article, it occurred to me that developers of new tools that will be built upon heavily would do well to try to think of names that can be vocalized in one or two syllables. Reading the name PHP or the mouthful WYSIWYG should take longer than words such as C or Java or SCRUMM or perl if we are indeed vocalizing them. Perhaps the convention of adding www to the beginning of website names has had a substantial impact on the efficiency of web navigation?
