Weird Mood: Pledge of Allegiance to the Web

I don’t know why I am in a weird mood this morning – probably because I am writing the exam for SI502 – which of course includes a question about the request-response cycle.
I started thinking about how important the request-response cycle is to information, networks, and people these days and somehow I leapt to the idea that we needed something like the “Pledge of Allegiance” to say at the beginning of every SI502 class to reinforce this notion of the importance of request-response cycle.
Here is my first draft of the “Pledge of Allegiance to the Web”:
“I pledge allegiance to the web and the open standards upon which its built, and to the request-response cycle upon which it stands, one Internet for the greater good, indivisible, with liberty and equal access for all.”
Comments welcome.
Now back to writing that midterm exam for SI502.
