Almost 10 years ago, we started this site to poke fun at all things digital. Our posts were downright silly – wavering between ludicrous technology company mashups and the application of digital into politics. Let’s face it: things were weird in 2008/2009. We even called it “Web 2.0” (quaint, huh?).
For various reasons we turned off this site, thinking it would permanently be lost to our memories and the Internet Wayback Machine. Well, think again!
We are planning a number of new posts, but it might be fun to take a look in our archives to see how many posts actually came true. Czechit:
- We predicted that Apple would release the iClock six full years before Apple released the iWatch
- Not only did we predict that Obama would be the first president on Twitter in 2008 (it happened in 2015), we also predicted the real-life challenges he would face as president in our post on the new reality game called “Miracle at St. Obama“
- Our iGrrlfrend post predicted in 2008 the plot for the 2013 movie Her
- Tap-o-wicki may have been an inspiration for Tinder, released four years later in 2012
- In 2008, yooRyoo predicted that Yahoo! would cut 10% of the internet from it’s search results. Look what’s happened to the company since then…
- Our post about Snatch (a LinkedIn site for office dating) was eight years before it’s time! A 2016 article from the New York Post suggests that LinkedIn is indeed being used for professional dating
- And even though we predicted it in 2008, it’s still true today: 67% of all internet stats are made up on the spot
New posts are forthcoming! Until then, enjoy this trip down memory lane with us!
