...WITH THE MAN who sEES.....
||So the new domain titles are coming in are they? So says matey down the road with the 'Let It Be' lyrics embroidered on his socks . Dot name, dot aero, dot museum, dot info..........||He reckons that dot biz will be the new dot com, whatever significance that is. When I was at school 'biz' was a euphemism for shit as in 'your new shirt is biz' or 'your mum stinks of biz' or 'computers? The're biz ' (not that we knew what they were).|
| I've never really pondered the origins
of 'biz' but if I had to hazard a guess,
I'd say it was derived from the name of
the german battleship Bismarck and the term 'skidmark'
|A skidmark should need no explanation, it is what posh kids called a 'poo stripe' proving that class was no barrier to having a smear of shit on your gusset. Fat kids had the worst ones. I blame that shiny bogpaper.||Presumably it was decided that 'biz' was german for 'skid' and 'mark' was the common denominator and that stuck ,so to speak. Anyway, I digress. The point is that I, my classmates, and maybe another few thousand people would snigger at the idea of anyone aspiring to be a dot biz.|
|And how many women will aspire to being a 'dot pro' for the same puerile reasoning.Which leaves you with 'dot name' or 'dot something' or 'dot anything', 'dot thingy' or 'dot tosspot'.||Mr Beatlesocks says it's the new Klondyke and everyone must rush to register something or they will be left behind in the info-highway services to play Space Invaders for eternity||Down at the gallery they were hoping for dot art after being shamed into doing something by that Nick Crowe bloke. So maybe I'm a dullard or a dotard but until my dotage I think I'll just stay a 'dot fuck-all' and let them get on with it.|
