A new technology officially qualifies as hype when the parodies start popping up.
The website reminds of your typical 1999 internet startup, displaying a single page that makes lots of promises but doesn't show anything. Poking fun at the Web2.0 euphoria it states:
"If you're an idiot VC who is willing to throw money at any website that features the words "collaborative", "social", "tagging" or "AJAX", then please get in touch with us at: [email protected] Please set the subject to "I have more money than sense".
Sorry this box doesn't have curvy edges. We promise that by the time this thing is finished, it'll have curvy edges everywhere, along with broken navigation, a confusing user interface and tags all over the shop. It's going to be awesome."
