WAMU{.org/.com}

WAMU, our local NPR station in DC, left me with a cliff hanger as I rushed back from the grocery store. In the days prior to the streaming web I would have just sat with the car idling in the driveway. Tonight though I was able to rush up the stairs and start the live stream. I made one strategic mistake though. I went to http://wamu.com rather than http://wamu.org I thought the outcome was share worthy:

WAMU.com

WAMU.org

I forgot about our old pal Washington Mutual that is now deep in litigation. I wonder if now that WaMu is a name no one wants JP Morgan can hand it over to the NPR station to make sure no one else makes the same mistake I did.
