Lazyweb, a site envisioned by Matt Jones and built by Ben Hammersley, was online from 2002 to 2006 before being shut down due to an overabundance of trackback and comment spam. The site, a progenitor of the web 2.0 movement, was one of the first to harness the "Wisdom of Crowds" - by allowing you to ask a question of the internet audience in hopes that someone out there had the answer or solution, which you were too inexperienced or "lazy" to find for yourself.
"Asking the lazyweb" as a phrase has become a way to request an idea you have neither the time nor the inclination to create. For example you might blog: "I wish I could save all my IMs forever, and search them. Hey lazyweb, build it for me?" and some anonymous reader might build it (or more likely, send you a link to some preexisting software).
This is a part of the emerging Vendor Relationship Management movement.
