Are We Full Yet (AWFY) is a site aimed at showcasing the latest and greatest single serving sites (SSS). Some, as you will see, are straightforward; others are more roundabout. Some sites are fun, while others are just plain random.
As Veronica Belmont of MaximumPC states, “It may seem that these sites are little more than a quick bit of entertainment, but I would go so far as to say that they are the very essence of Internet, boiled down and purified into one perfect block of code.”
This essence even became the source of inspiration and data for a thesis.
Foster Kamer of The Village Voice thinks of good single serving websites as “the dim sum of the internet: the really good ones are hard to find and often look like all the others, but when done correctly, [are] priceless and wonderful treats.”
So, call us your dim sum specialists, or not. We’re here to scour the Interwebs to provide you delicious randomness and fun. We hope you enjoy your feast and will eat with us again, and again, and again… ad infinitum.
What’s up with the name of this site?
The name of this site, Are We Full Yet, is derived from a combination of two ideas:
1. “Single serving”* as in single servings (of food) that you can digest till you’re full
2. The royal we, which is when an individual speaks about him or herself in plural
*The term single serving site comes from blogger, Jason Kottke, who identified the trend in 2008.
