Default MILLIONTH ENGLISH WORD!!!

It's web 2.0

GLM said Web 2.0 beat out the terms Jai ho, N00b and slumdog to take top spot.


Maybe it's just because I play too many games, but N00b should have been it!!!

But N00b comes from the gaming community, the company said, explaining that it is used as a disparaging term to describe a neophyte in a particular game.

Hahahaha





EDIT:

Oh ya, here's the article.

What happened to 'Mackeed'? I thought we were going to collectively petition for that to be the millionth word.
