web 2.0 + star wars March 11, 2007

Posted by nicholas gill in web 2.0.

Ever noticed how web 2.0 companies all have silly sounding names? On a practical level this is mainly becaue all the normal sounding names have been trademarked by the corporate world leaving odd sounding, meaningless ditties as the only route to go. But this has thrown up something of an amusement factor in that the names of the web 2.0 world sound like they’ve been lifted right out of the Star Wars universe.

This site has an amusing quiz to determine your geek level. And if you ever want to lighten the mood at a presentation, use this deck.

And a final bit of Star Wars for today, it would appear the US Postal Service has registered uspsjedimaster.com. Check out some funky images of R2-D2 post boxes at Show me Sci-Fi blog.
