internet, web, net

Wired announced this week that they would no longer capitalize internet, web or net, effectively placing them on the same level with books, television, and radio. Cool. They're not proper nouns, so they shouldn't be capitalized.

Now if someone could finally settle "one-word-or-two" confusion over web sites and webpages.

I tend to use website myself, but then web page. No consistency. The interesting thing about not capitalizing web or net is that those two words have many other meanings, which may cause confusion when used without capitalization, in some cases.
