words

That which is popular but ultimately worthless. often based upon media based images and embodying a crippling shallowness. By it's nature, transitory, so today's shitegeist is tomorrows chip wrappings. Defived from Zeitgeist, but embodying the meaningless of postmodern culture.

Um...twitter? It's not a material but I still can't figure out how useful that could be for many people (unless you're building online presence/business).

Useful word for a cynic like me!

Yuko - I'm not on twitter, but I think it can be a useful method of sharing information, not always shallow.

Shelley - yes, me too!

I'm afraid this is seems to prevail too much nowadays and the struggle is to counteract (with regards to my kids at least). Dread to think how things will be in a decade or two?

I agree SilkP, and with kids it is even more worrisome because they are so taken in by the latest pop culture. Makes me crazy. :)
