oxford dictionary names ‘podcast’ word of the year

12.12.05 @ 03:44:51 pacific

In 2004, the Merriam-Webster dictionary named “blog” Word of the Year. This year, the New Oxford American Dictionary named “podcast” Word of the Year. This is remarkable when you consider that most people have no idea what a blog or podcast actually is. This is changing as mainstream media and old-school reference tomes tout the new technologies. How long until wiki makes it to word of the year?
