    lets come up with the books first. This could turn out to be a lot of stuff.

    We need a book of browsers, or maybe a book for each browser. A book of haxors. Definatly a book of hosts (could be a parody of acts). We can have a long set of does and donts to parody numbers. Proverbs could take some time.

    I can't think of a title for the first book, so here goes (v1-5):
    The Beginning
    1. In the beginning ARPA created the Internet. Now the Internet was formless and empty, no data flowed over the network, and the Interfaith Message Processor was hovering over the nodes.

    And ARPA said, "Let there be protocols," and there were procols. And ARPA saw that the protocols were good, and it seperated the reliable stream from the addressing protocol. ARPA called the reliable protocol "TCP", and the addressing protocol it called "IP".

    the beginning of matthew would be interesting, too:
    ARPANET begat (i know i'm wrong after this) JANET, and JANET begat SPILNET, and SPILNET begat ARAFAT, and ARAFAT begat ALGORE, and ALGORE begat the INTERNET.

    Dont forget, The ten commandments but anyway heres my contribution...

    One day the w3c came to present themselves before the webmaster, and Satan also came with them. The webmaster said to Satan, "Where have you come from?"
    Satan answered the client , "Freewbs"
    Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my client Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who sits around for ages waiting for my simple background to load"

    Ok, I've done the beginning, how about the end:
    I warn everyone who downloads the bytes of webpages in this book: If anyone adds anything to them, the IAB will add to him the DDOS described in this book. And if anyone takes bytes away from this book of webpages, the IAB will take away from him his Internet connection which is described in this book.

    Amen. Come, IPv6.
    Adam

    We could do it as a Wiki - anyone know a site where we can host one, or can provide the space?

    A few possible books, with their equivalents:
    • Hello World (Genesis)
    • The Book of Protocols (Proverbs)
    • The Book of Lag (Lamentations)
    • The Book of Google (one of the major prophets, possibly Isaiah)
    • 0 & 1 Tim Berners-Lee (1 & 2 Timothy)
