Word of the day

Today's word is bacn. This has been donated by Rebecca, who refers to the term as describing "mail like updates from MySpace and Facebook that isn't quite spam, but you don't want it all the time just the same. There is a whole blog", Rebecca says, " devoted to spreading the term."

The blog describes bacn as "email you want, but not right now" and Rebecca is quite right - the site is all about bacn. Today's post, for example, argues that although some people think bacn is a silly word, they used to think that about spam. The term was first used way back in August 2007 at
PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 "a FREE BarCamp-style community Unconference or people who create, enjoy or are interested in learning more about blogs, vlogs, audio podcasts, web video, content networks and new media monetization."

In the meantime, you can buy www.bacn.com for only US$4625 or thereabouts.
