Word of the day
Today's word is timesink, courtesy of my fellow-blogger Kathryn Greenhill from Fremantle, who runs the wonderful library blogging site librariansmatter.com. Kathryn used the word in a post about twitter. So as well as learning a useful word - the world is full of timesinks, suddenly trapping us in some unexpected time-wasting disaster - I learned about twitter. I also learned about microliveblogging (Kathryn is a real fan of runtogethers). You can find out for yourselves about twitter (not my kind of thing), but I couldn't find a definition of microliveblogging, because Goggle has only one link - to Kathryn's blog. Is there a word for that?
