Wired / tired / expired

[A building. What parti; what intention, does it work ..?]

I really wish Wired mag would bring back its wired/ tired/ expired jargon watch. Online, of course.

We need it. Online, all sorts of things may be kept in a sort-of Gartner hype cycle tally, too. For the things, memes, and apps, that persist or not, for the ones that fade away (‘dynamic tombstone’?), for posterity. And to prevent ugly words from becoming Word of the Year or so.

Or should we do it ourselves? I’ll give it a shot. Will have to dig into the format, layout, rules, starting base.
Any ideas about a categorisation in Hot / Sloth / Not ..?

See you in 2014!
