|The New Oxford American Dictionary Word of the Year for 2007 is “locavore.”
What the heck?
“Locavore” was coined two years ago by a group of four women in San Francisco who proposed that local residents should try to eat only food grown or produced within a 100-mile radius.
Runners-up for the 2007 Word of the Year that made more sense to me:
bacn: email notifications you sign up for but probably leave in your inbox unread
cloudware: online applications, such as Adobe Buzzword
social graph: the network of one’s friends and connections on social websites such as Facebook and Myspace
