'e' for 'event', not 'error'?

Hi everyone

I just thought it (perhaps pedantic, but) necessary to point out that in the video (~2.26) where Andrew chooses to name the event object 'error' for clarity, the standard 'e' used by many JavaScript developers makes more sense because 'e' is for 'event', not 'error'.

Sorry to get my knickers in a twist about this, but I find it can confuse things, particularly as we're calling the 'error' method on the console object later in the same function. There are a multitude of events, so it's best not to confuse things this early on.

Thanks for letting me have my two cents!
