The Oxford Dictionary of English has added the word "blog" to its pages. I'm relieved to hear that this pastime has some validity now.
They also added the word "egosurfing" which means "searching the Internet for references to oneself." I did some egosurfing of my own tonight, and I found myself mentioned in Geoff Morris's weblog. Geoff is a guy I worked with in the student government of UAH several years ago. As if that wasn't enough of an ego kick, the title of his post is "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants." I am taken aback.
