American Sign Language: "internet"

Your hands move forward and back.  The tips of the middle finger brush together as they pass.




There is another common way to sign "internet" but my option is that this version actually means "network."  You touch the middle fingertips together, then you reposition (change the palm orientation) the hands and touch the middle fingertips together again.  Or you can just keep the middle fingers touching and wiggle the hands twice.



If you want to express the concept of a "website" what I typically do is I do the letter W twice, with an arc. This sign is like signing WWW except you just do "WW" and it seems to fill the role of the concept of the English word "website."
