Dictionary of the near future

September 28, 2010

 Douglas Coupland’s Dictionary of the near future is worth a read. I particularly like:

DESELFING Willingly diluting one’s sense of self and ego by plastering the Internet with as much information as possible. (See also Omniscience Fatigue; Undeselfing)

ROSENWALD’S THEOREM The belief that all the wrong people have self-esteem.

LYRICAL PUTTY The lyrics one creates in one’s head in the absence of knowing a song’s real lyrics.
