[ L ] Top Ten Internet Fads


A fad, for purposes of this article, is an idea or technology which is briefly popular, but can't outlast its own novelty value. Once people get over the newness of it all, there isn't really anything special left. Here are the ten which stand out most in my mind.


  1. Live Customer Service
  2. Flash Mobs
  3. VoIP (Rounds 1 and 2)
  4. Thin Clients
  5. Digital Personae
  6. The .sig Virus
  7. WAP
  8. Digital Acronyms (B2C, B2B, B2G, G2C, P2P, etc.)
  9. Anything Sold Online
  10. PointCast
