Jargons take over Blogosphere

When the outside world is full of jargons, can the Blog world be devoid of it? NYT tries to capture the popular jargons (MSM, Link Love, Memes etc) and decides to create a new word called Blargon (Blog + Jargon) in the process. Patrix used the word Blogisfaction (Blog + Satisfaction) few days ago. I’m sure more such words are going to be coined and added to list of blargons. At the height of the dot com boom, the words “cyber” and “e” were being prefixed to all possible terms. The current trend indicates that we’ll see a similar trend in the blogosphere as well.

  • Not surprising, considering Blog (weB LOG) itself is a coined word.

  • SLakhs, the word Blog comes from 'Weblog' and not Weblog, as most people think.
