Today's terminology is weird
- iJunkies - The world at the touch of a button
- Technomadism — Wireless life
- TechnoBling — Technology must look good in addition to working well
- Insulationships—How technology is mediating teens’ relationship with the world around them
- The Neighbornet—Teen world expanded on the net
- Ego Anglers—Looking for positive strokes on the net
- The Digital Disguise—Transforming identities on the net
- ACME Auteur—Creating, Producing & Directing on the net
- Life Caching—Memory replaced by knowing where to find it
- Brain Blur—Multi-tasking in 2006
- Dataddiction—Teens can’t live without the web
- The Chill-Challenged—Idle hands? Not today’s teens.
Of course, there is a lot of marketing frenzyness here, sort of having category to refer to subgroups, but the underlying rhetoric is interesting. Some trends appears: junkies+addiction / neighbornet+insulationships (creation of subgroups, do they talk to each other?) / disguise (ok maybe that's the way a person from one subgroup has to behave to take to another group / blur (the brain is blurred but what about the social bonds?) / eco anglers looking (the world is bad and they're looking for sth better?).
Why do I blog this? it's interesting to see how today's trends are reflected into language, with odd portmanteau concept.
