The other day in the car, we were wondering where the term w00t came from. If only I had a wireless Internet connection plugged into my brain! (Kam pointed out that I would always be bumping into things. But it would be worth it.) Or, alternatively, a Treo 650.

Ahem. Anyway, point being: Wikipedia to the rescue once again.

In the meantime, someone pointed me to woot.com, which has a remarkable business model: every weekday, they put up a single product for sale. They take and ship orders throughout the day. The next day, that product is no longer available, and something else is available in its stead. If a product sells out, that's it—all gone, no more to be had. Oh, and their product descriptions are entertaining.
