Those wacky Germans…

Those wacky Germans…

Imagine you’re a German web development guru, who’s discovered this whole brand new phenomenon called Social Bookmarking. And you want to bring it to the German Hoff-loving masses. What would you call such a social bookmarking site? Would you ride on the Web 2.0 bandwagon?

Nope. Welcome to mister-wong.com. Complete with comic graphics of Chinese blokes looking like Einstein searching the web, just for you. Even better, when you dip into the German side of the site, the invitation to register says “Wong the web”. Now why didn’t I think of registering that?

Anyone got any ideas why this might be? I’d better reserve mr-patel.com just in case…

  • I wonder if they’re related – the first german Mr Wong was a wonderful Pixel Art project that’s been around and a favourite of mine for years – Mr Wong’s Appartment

    Is wongtheweb.com still available? /Dio fires up his domain registery thingy…

    Processing…

    Yes it its! Grab it now. 🙂

  • Some great links there Andy, thanks. I, too, remember Mr Wong's big pixelly tower!

    Hmm. That sounds rude, now I think about it.
