In reviewing the copyedits of UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO, I was saddened to learn that the word Internet still requires capitalization. 

Why? Can we please agree to stop the insanity!  

The internet is not a place like Tallahassee and Timbuktu.  It is a network of computers, no different than the telephone or electrical lines that crisscross our country.  Why is must still be capitalized is beyond my imagination.     

I dare someone to defend this ridiculous convention.
