BLOGGING: Language

While the post itself is excellent, what sparked my interest in Scott Esposito’s post regarding a review of the book Jamestown is this phrase:  "a book that has pinged my radar…"

While Scott is using it in its traditional definition, I read it initially as the pinging of weblogging–track backing to a site to connect to the reference source. 

Interesting how technology does not only produce new words (hopefully Windows Word 2007 does acknowledge "weblog") but affects traditional usage as well.  Neat.
