Stumbled across this little ditty at Podcast Alley today:
I was testing the new design of www.dictionary.com and of course I browsed for the words podcast and podcasting. While podcast resulted in 0 results, podcasting did have 1 result.
1 result for: podcasting
Webster’s New Millennium™ Dictionary of English
Main Entry: podcasting
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: the Web-based broadcast of music which works with software that automatically detects new files and is accessed by subscription
Etymology: 2004; iPod + broadcasting
The anonymous author goes on to tear apart the entry, although is a very civilized manner. I don't want to steal the entire post by pasting his response to this entry here, but suffic it to say that he's right on the money.
Webster's should be ashamed of this definition. I'm stunned that it made it online.
