@LapTop006 @kevinmarks somehow I doubt that’s going to end well, e.g. “I just had a great idea for a thing!”

“Check out this thing I just bought!”

“There’s a thing on my wrist!”

“I’m wearing a thing!”

“I need a raspberry pi and some sensors so I can make a thing!”

It’s hardly a specific term which enables efficient, productive communication :)
