Best of all words?

What word did the most people look up in 2004? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, it was 'blog'. Yes, the very word you just read on the very thing you're reading now. How is it defined? "A place online where bored people write random crap read by no one, not even their own moms." OK, so that's my definition. Here's theirs: "A Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer." As you may know, the word was derived from the phrase 'web log'. So what do you think of blogs? Do you read them? Or do you wonder... what's the point?

Though your definition of 'blog' may be the truer definition, I'll cling to the second one just to make myself feel better.
