0202: /waiting.room


For that special kind of boredom

There is a certain type of captive boredom that only a waiting room can produce.  Not only are you stuck there, but you are rarely ever looking forward to what you are waiting for.

While /bored may be popular with the teenagers, the folks on localweb.is/waiting.room are a little older and wiser.  You will often find the type of philosophical discussions on /waiting.room that only sterile white walls and hard plastic seats can produce.  There are many flavors of boredom, and the folks on /waiting.room have found their own space.

If you get into a good conversation and filter /waiting.room down to 100 feet, well then there is very good chance that the person you are talking to is in the same room.   After you have finished typing your refutation of the structural integrity of the Stay Puff marshmallow man, maybe you could message your fellow waiting room participant to continue the conversation later, over coffee.  Or perhaps not, depending on the type of appointment you are waiting for.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
