mumbo jumbo web site names December 21, 2007

Posted by Will in online tools, technology, virtual life.

I’m sure you’re as confused as I am by all the Dr. Seuess-style web service names that pop up these days: Doostang. Wufoo. Bliin. Thoof. Bebo. Meebo. Meemo. Kudit. Raketu. Etelos. Iyogi. Oyogi. Qoop. Fark. Kijiji. Zixxo. Zoogmo.

 You get the picture. David Pogue at the New York Times has written an excellent analysis of this trend.

Wow, there’s even an algorithm that makes up names?!? Talk about sucking the fun out of creativity. I wonder if there is site out there somewhere that throws together a bunch of colors on pages and call it modern art – oh wait a second, there are sites that do this http://www.donrelyea.com/resampled/postmodern_modernist_III.htm, http://windowseat.ca/viscosity/
