Get Noticed. Invent a Term.

Slashdot discusses how the media made up an event and a term, "Cyber Monday". I must admit that I never heard of it till this year. Maybe my nerd vocabulary is not up to snuff. Maybe the media is promoting capitalism by generating a buzz that never existed. Afterall, brick and mortar stores have Black Friday. We have to come up with something for the internet. Thank you God it's not called "iMonday", "Monday Xtreme", "Monday 360", or "Monday Shopping & Blogging."

One reader, with a very creative name even his mother could love, provided further verification using Google Groups.

Given so-called "Cyber Monday" and other made up events like Kwanzaa, I understand where Seinfeld was coming from. Grab your pole! It's Festivus for the rest of us!!
