WATCH section of Wired magazine is where you'll find a small but dead-on
window where cyberculture collides into language. This "pocket dictionary"
is a collection of terms posted in that section since 1993, plus 100 new
entries. Ever do any domain dipping (typing in random words between www.
and .com just to find out what's out there)? Receive a zen mail (e-mail
messages that arrive with no text in the message body)? Or maybe you've
had an ohnosecond (that miniscule fraction of time in which you realize
you've just made a BIG mistake). Gareth Branwyn's introduction is a short
but cogent explanation of how jargon becomes popular in cyberculture.

instructions, hands-on information, practical hints, and case studies. 2-color
