I get a healthy handful of emails from tech companies and PR agencies with some pretty lame-sounding subject lines in my in-box each week — Large Display Industry Snapshot 2009, Interactive Toy Concepts at CES 2010 and WOORYWOOS TAKE OVER TV, to name a few from the last couple days. But then I get one like this that’s so over-the-top geektastic and it makes all the others fade away:
Futron! Space Competitiveness! Webinar! A veritable cavalcade of scitech buzzwordiness. I don’t even care what it means — sign me up.
I have a new least favorite word. I received a press release this morning announcing a “twebinar” taking place today. That’s right, a twebinar.
Twebinar (n): Webex Webinar + Live Twitter Session
Explains the release:
