Etewaf, or "everything that ever was - available forever", is a term coined by comedian Patton Oswalt in the Wired magazine article "Wake up, Geek culture. Time to die."
It refers to the concept of every piece of cultural media (that is or was) being readily available to the public.

Acronym for: Everything That Ever Was - Available Forever. Coined by Patton Oswalt in his article for Wired Magazine titled "Wake Up, Geek Culture. Time to Die." (Wired 19.01).

We’re on the brink of Etewaf: Everything That Ever Was—Available Forever."
