This morning I heard David Bouchier talk about blog, his blog on WSHU Public Radio and how he finds the word blog ugly. He asks whether there is a better word for it? I can't think of any, but I don't even know whether one needs another word.
I remember how different the word Google sounded when I first came to know about it 5 years ago. Now we even have the verb, google. Some day, web historians will answer the question that David Bouchier asked today.
