Discovered by accident earlier today....

Hold your hand (the right one works best) up, and curl your pinky
down.  Three fingers are now sticking up.

Spread them apart (if you keep them together, you look like a Boy Scout.)

Now, it makes the letter "W" stand out reasonably clearly.  Plus,
you're sticking up 3 fingers, so it represents the number 3.  So it's
a W!  It's a 3!  It's W3!  What more could anybody possibly ask for in
an official WWW hand gesture?

Someobdy needs to develop a secret WWW handshake based on this.
