We dropped the www, we began to roll our eyes at the term “cyberspace”, we kicked the computer altogether and grabbed our phones to get content through the magic of QR readers. What’s next? Damned if we know. But from what we understand, if you want to at least seem like you are ahead of the curve, you should refer to your online destinations as “Interwebs”, or “Interwebz”.
According to Wiktionary, “interwebs” is “a slang, humorous name for The Internet, typically used in a jocular or sarcastic manner by more experienced Internet users, especially as a mockery of the less experienced when used with ‘teh‘.”
Makes sense, we guess, because nothing proves superiority quite like a condescending catchphrase. Unless, of course, you slip and put a www in front of it.
