Internet Country Codes

For this weeks post, I am going to stray a little from providing a new application or web2.0 tool.  This weeks post will also be a little shorter than most.

When going and searching out websites on the Internet, you may see the .uk on a URL.  Have you ever wondered why?  Do your students know why that is there? You might even know that is the code for the United Kingdom.  There are codes for every country in the world, and even some for world organizations like NATO. 

Here is the link to a site that has all the Internet Country Codes.

This is just a fun fact and could be an interesting bulletin board topic, especially in a computer classroom.

Enjoy the list.
