The Devil’s Dictionary of the Internet

Saturday, January 10th, 2004

From Greg Knauss' Devil's Dictionary (via Simon Willison):

command line, noun
The most efficient method available for accidentally deleting data.
journalism, noun
A form of information distribution widely acknowledge to be unethical, corrupt and amoral; also, what blogging is, God dammit!
p2p, noun
A class of computer network, designed to allow people to remain safely anonymous while they trade public domain documents and songs to which they own the copyright.
Semantic Web, proper noun
An attempt to apply the Dewey Decimal system to an orgy.

The original Devil's Dictionary (1911) by Ambrose Bierce is also available online.

1) Report bug. 2) ??? 3) Profit!

Track the popularity of the Busniess Plan meme over time by searching for Mozilla bug reports that say "3. Profit".

So far, 27 bugs have been reported with the phrase. The first report was in December 2001, and the meme's popularity seems to have peaked around March 2003. Its popularity is now declining slowly.

Fun with the English language
