+ - "Slashdot effect" is part of the English language->

Submitted by SEWilco
SEWilco (27983) writes "The phrase "Slashdot effect" is now part of the English language, according to the English TV show "Countdown". The Internet also added paywall, unfriend/defriend, tag cloud, hashtag and tweetup to the language, while that real-world thing added epigenome, ecohacking, phantonym, redact, and zombie bank."
