  1. What are you lot up to?

  2. Are you trying to see what kind of search results you get for those words after this page is indexed by Google, Yahoo!, and others?

  3. I don’t know what ‘Bujumbura’ means (sorry Zeldman and Molly!) but the rest sort of make sense…sort of.

    Good one though….words are lovely things! πŸ™‚

  4. Molly: Hey, what happened to the weather in Santa Monica? # frowns # ….I’ve never seen it look overcast like that before. Well, at least it looked like you had a nice time all the same. πŸ™‚

  5. Mollying makes you blind.

  6. Bujumbura is the capital of Burundi

  7. James (Kilfiger): Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Now…what has that got to do with Zeldman?! # Laughs #

    All of you are @Media….so that’s the linky.

  8. Anthrompomorphize isn’t a word.

    It seems you all write it the same way.

    Anthropomorphize does exist…

  9. Oh no, it’s that UI9 secret Web Professional meme all over again, but this time with words!

    And why is Molly ‘Masturbatory’??

  10. You see, once you get on there list of friends, you immediately get tons of visitors, because they just do thinks like this to get each other more popular.

    Just like the picture in picture one a while back, only they could participate properly, and be linked by each other.

    I’m impressed.

  11. I’m quite surprised Cederholm isn’t playing this time.

  12. You’re all b@stards and I’m not jealous at all.

  13. I’d like to know how the words got picked.

  14. There are no tags in Flickr for any of these words.

    There is a tag for Anthropomorphize, but remember it didn’t use to be in the list.

    Some have corrected the mistake… hmmm…

  15. wow… I can’t wait for YOUR presentation! LOL

  16. yeah, it should be interesting to see what this is all about.

  17. I don’t know how I’m going to be able to keep a straight face now. Superannuation was cleverly done.

  18. Just got back from @media. I believe they all used these words in their presentations.

    Was all very good btw. Looking forward to next year as I doubt the company I work for will fly me to Sydney for the one there somehow…

  19. That was hilarious – I had the best time! And Extra points for Andy Budd’s Perinaeum… so gutsy! πŸ™‚

  20. Andy Clarke was brilliant in working didactic into his presentation – with a suitably Welsh twist.

  21. They were all brilliant, and they deserve credit for it!

  22. Great stuff. Of course the stakes have been raised extremely high for @media 2006 now – nobody’s going to accept a speaking place because they know they’re going to have to work ‘pan-galactic gargle blaster’ into their presentation… πŸ˜‰

  23. Very clever. I didn’t actually realise till Faruk said [I missed this post as it was when I was coming down].

    Hope you’re head is ok πŸ™‚

  24. And because of our linking of the words before the conference, Google has now done it’s thing and my site is now #3 for the word ‘beefcake’. Boy, are some people going to be disappointed with /that/ search result!

  25. Ian: Google “Masturbatory”

    You think you got it bad?

    Thanks for all the kind words, all. It was quite a lot of fun.

  26. Was all very good btw. Looking forward to next year as I doubt the company I work for will fly me to Sydney for the one there somehow…

  27. thanks for your sharing

  28. Hm, i never heard about this.

Upcoming Travels
