What’s the opposite of buzzword?

WordPress Marketing Blogger Francis Anderson points us to a fun Gawker post on Web 2.0 buzzwords that are full of hot air.  Here’s a sample:

Influential: Unread. If a site isn’t popular, it insists its small audience is made of “influentials” or “early adopters.”

User-generated: Quality-deprived. Or “can’t afford an NBC deal.” Except for a few impressive exceptions, user-generated content is a swamp not worth slogging through, which is why sites like YouTube set up a partner program for “better” producers.

As we head into the weekend, I’d just like to thank all the readers who have helped make Eyecube the influential, user-generated juggernaut that it has become. You may notice on the right that Eyecube is now listed on the AdAge Power 150, checking in at a lofty #663.

Have a good weekend everybody.
