CONTROL + ALT + DELETE A Dictionary of Cyberslang JONATHON KEATS

The technology revolution is also a revolution in language, with new words created seemingly every day. Control + Alt + Delete is the book for readers who don’t know what blook, chiptune, or slivercast mean. Covering the basics, such as blogs and wikis, as well as more advanced terminology, it includes the terms and the definitions everyone needs to be in-the-know, such as:

Bug: According to legend, the first “bug” to cause a system malfunction was actually a moth caught in a computer at Harvard shortly after WWII. Weblogistan: A segment of the blogosphere maintained by Iranian activists as a parallel universe to their country’s oppressive political landscape.

Jonathon Keats pens the “JargonWatch” column for Wired Magazine and has written for The Washington Post, Popular Science, and Salon.com. He lives in San Francisco.
