Inventional Wisdom

January 30, 2010

Even the most conventional wisdom sometimes needs an update in the Internet Age.  Hell, even wisdom that doesn’t need updating looks a lot prettier after some touch-ups here and there.  In that spirit, this collection of updated colloquialisms for 2010 brings the new convention to the wisdom.  From the post:

Hindsight is always 1080p.

One #hashtag does not a trending topic make.

That’s a hard act to unfollow.

The bandwidth is always greener on the other side of the firewall.

He’s 10 bits short of a byte.

What makes the article even better is the fact that the commenting users submitted ideas that were just as good and better than the original post.

Look before you link.

A blog in the hand is worth two in the head.

There’s more than one way to send a tweet.

Out of the firewall and into the fire.

You’re tweeting to the choir.

Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach him how to phish, and he’ll eat forever.

Proofread twice, hit “send” once.

And maybe one of the best:

Rickroll me once, shame on you. Rickroll me twice, shame on me!

Talk about right up my alley.  Or maybe that should be “right up my pipeline”?  Got any other ideas?
