I was listening to the Radio 4 comedy quiz show banter on the way home last night and it struck me that this weeks programme was actually pretty geeky. I can only put this down to the influences of Dave Gorman of Googlewhack fame and Will Smith a self confessed Sci-Fi and Bergerac!? fan.
One of the rounds asked the guests to name their top 3 websites and the usual suspects Google, Amazon and eBay were mentioned. Dave Gorman was a bit more original and suggested http://www.wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.com/. Back at University I tried to get http://www.dot.com but unfortunately it was already taken.
Another round asked guests to name their top 3 robots Metal Mickey, Marvin the paranoid android and Twiki were all mentioned as well as R2D2, at which point Will Smith launched into a rant about inconstancies between the original Star Wars episodes and the new ones.
The geeks are taking over, be afraid, bring back Quote…Unquote before it’s too late!
