.VanNuys - Fast Times at Internet High

I saw in today's news that US National Film Preservation Board has selected Fast Times at Ridgemont High to be included in the National Film Registry.

That deserves a top level domain (TLD) - .VanNuys.


Well, in case you didn't know, the school used in the film is Van Nuys High School (in the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles.)  And if there is any high school that can claim the title of the home of the internet, it is Van Nuys High.

VNH can claim as graduates Vint Cerf, Jon Postel, Steve Crocker, and, of course, myself.

And yes, it was exactly like the movie.
