I’d like to be annoyed by the “Web 2.0” label, but overall I think it loosely denotes a collection of good trends, and that’s slightly useful. The Wikipedia article has a good summary. But then there are completely vacuous articles such as Five Reasons Why Web 2.0 Matters (via /.) that simply cry out for parody.
Five Reasons Why Bathroom Tissue Matters
- The Focus of Technology Moves To People With Bathroom Tissue.
- Bathroom Tissue Represents Best Practices.
- Bathroom Tissue Has Excellent Feng Shui.
- Quality Is Maximized, Waste Is Minimized.
- Bathroom Tissue Has A Ballistic Trajectory.
Certainly there are other reasons why Bathroom Tissue is important and you’re welcome to list them here, but I think this captures the central vision in a way that most anyone who craps can grasp and access.
BTW, I will also use this moment to state that Bathroom Tissue is a terrible name for this new vision of paper-based people-centric product. Except that is for every other name we have at the moment (for example, like “next generation of the arsewipe”). So I will continue to use Bathroom Tissue until something better comes along.
OK, don’t agree? Please straighten me out. Why does bathroom tissue matter (or not) to you?
Toilet paper anyone?
