industrial design rantings, mediocre humor.

Thursday, January 19, 2006

Originally woot was what a nerd playing an internet game such as counterstrike would yell/type when he was "owning" other people. Now the name has become the name of an underground phenomenon/business model on the internet. It is as brilliant as it is simple. is a site where one 'woot' or product is sold for 24 hrs. They are usually overstock or refurbished electronics. The prices are incredible and they always sellout before the day is over. The description of the product is hilarious and sometimes the product has an 'industrial design' category for its plastic type and stuff. What a brilliant way to get rid of a pallet or two of overstock or last year’s model! I look at it everyday so I don’t miss out. Woot!
