New Words for New CommunicationsToday, the term blogtificate came to me: the process of unloading one's unqualified opinions, unsupported by fact, into a blog because no one else wants to hear them.
That got me thinking that there must be plenty of others:
- imaway - (adj.) When you set your Internet messaging software to away status so people will stop bothering you as you try to get something done.
- blackberryed - (adj.) The state of having a Blackberry filed with so many emails that you will never be able to respond to all of them.
- iphoney - (n.) A technology poseur who purchases some trendy device but hasn't yet learned how to turn it on.
