I can has new wurdz

ROFL? You probably won't, but Tom Chatfield's defence of the endless stream of neologisms generated by rapidly developing technology is an interesting read. "Approximeetings" and "slactivism" make me think of all the terminology and definitions in Douglas Coupland's Generation X - the only thing that makes it worth reading.

On a word-related note, it's hard to imagine an engaging and informative article about the humble full stop but this might just be it.

(Thanks to Dave for the latter link.)
