Geek Speak

I have remarked on a couple of occasions that tools such as online bookmarks are stunningly brilliant ideas but it seems that they always have stunningly stupid names. For example, Web 2.0 developers call a tool del.icio.us instead Delicious, or Digg instead of Dig, or Furl instead of... er... well you get the idea. :-)

To see just how silly it is all getting, take the Web 2.0 or Star Wars character quiz. You will be presented with 43 different names and you have to say whether each is the name of a Web 2.0 technology or the name of a character from Star Wars.

I scored 31 and so I was told, "31-40: As your doctor, I recommend moving out of your parents' basement." :-)

David, I have just given it a go and scored 32 (mainly luck than knowledge).
