Great links! Mar 24, 2003

Their glossary of words coined or which had meanings reviewed in 2003 is highly interesting.



One I have loved although it represents a \'step backwards\', I think:



McDonaldisation - process in UK universities where the syllabus becomes a fixed menu or contract between student and professor rather than starting point, according to Times Higher Education Supplement. (Nominated by reader Steve Webb, UK)



Also:



• generation text - those of the age who have thrown off the angst and rebellion of previous generations, and instead spend their time texting each other and comparing ringtones. (NB not related to 2001\'s Generation X-wing). (Nominated by reader Jim Downing)
