  5. 5. E-learning OR eLearning? From eLearning Technology Blog (2007)
  6. 6. Internet OR internet?• In 2002, a New York Times column theorized that Internet has been changing from a proper noun to a generic term. Words for new technologies, such as Phonograph in the 19th century, are sometimes capitalized at first, later becoming uncapitalized.• More recently, a significant number of publications have switched to not capitalizing the noun internet. Among them are The Economist, the Financial Times, The Times, the Guardian, the Observer and the Sydney Morning Herald. As of 2011, most publications using "internet" appear to be located outside of North America, but the gap is closing. (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_capitalization_conventions)
