What do you say we start calling it “The Webbie?”

I hear it all the time…people asking why Rhodia is calling their new hardback journal “The Webnotebook.” On my recent trip to Manhattan to meet with Karen, I posed that same question and the unofficial theory is that the president of Clairefontaine named it as such to represent a notebook that can be used to write down the ideas from the web of your mind.  Knowing how my own mind is a constant tangle of thoughts and ideas, I like the name- though I do find it slightly long on the tongue.

So from this moment forward, I propose that we give it an easy to remember nickname. I think we should call it…..

The Webbie!

What do you think?  Does it fit?

  1. Hmmmm, I always assumed it had something to do with the world wide web, but that really doesn’t make sense when I think about it. Webbie is fine with me as long as I can call the little ones weblings.

  3. >Or we could call it a Rhode book (short for Rhodia and for the road we travel using them.)

    Rhodebook happened to be the first thing to pop into my mind as well. (Quickly followed by the ridiculous “Rhodia Scholar.”)

    But would that sound too much like “Wrotebook” or “Rotebook?” (The latter suggesting you either learned through rote memory or engaged in the routine, which you probably wouldn’t want.)
