Blog : word of the year

02Dec04

Reuters reports that the word ‘blog’ tops tops U.S. dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster’s list of the 10 words of the year.  (Link through Poynter e-media tidbits)

Describing ‘blog’ as a four-letter term that came to symbolize the difference between old and new media during this year’s presidential campaign, the report goes on to state that it was one of the most looked-up words on the MW dictionary websites.

Sure enough, ‘blog’ will be the one word that differentiates the new media from the old, the informed and the willing to learn and share, from those not.
