The Oxford University Press’s choice for 2008 word of the year, hypermiling, left me cold, but I sure liked some of the finalists and shortlisted words:
frugalista – person who leads a frugal lifestyle, but stays fashionable and healthy by swapping clothes, buying second-hand, growing own produce, etc.
topless meeting – a meeting in which the participants are barred from using their laptops, Blackberries, cellphones, etc.
and the more familiar
link bait – content on a website that encourages [baits] a user to place links to it from other websites
tweet – a short message sent via the Twitter service, using a cellphone or other mobile device.
