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).
"When everyone has easy access to their favorite diversions and every diversion comes with a rabbit hole’s worth of extra features and deleted scenes and hidden hacks to tumble down and never emerge from, then we’re all just adding to an ever-swelling, soon-to-erupt volcano of trivia, re-contextualized and forever rebooted. We’re on the brink of Etewaf: Everything That Ever Was—Available Forever."

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.
Todd used to think that pepla enthusiasts were a rare breed, but thanks to etewaf there is a larger, if less informed, community he can relate his interests to.
