Thingery – My Word

I coined “Thingery” a long time ago and offered this entry at Wikipedia, which stuck:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Thingery is a type of business which turns stuff into Things through a process which is much like spinning straw into gold, mainly marketing their wares online.

Thingeries are entrepreneurial, independent and usually eco-responsible.

They are consumer-focused, often offering a variety of Things which at first glance seem unassociated with each other, but that is exactly their attraction. They are consumer-driven and consumers actually prefer a chaotic ever-changing collection of things when browsing on the Internet.

Tonight I wondered how my word was doing so I Googled it and found this scholarly discussion:
