Web 2.0 was announced as the millionth word in the English language according to The Global Language Monitor.  I find this quite strange as this seems a little bit late!  I’m pretty sure that we’ve just stopped using the phrase given it’s been completely over used and feels like quite an old term now – anyone agree?

Oxford English Dictionary does saying “We find it curious that a term coined in 1999 and in broad use since 2004 is being regarded as a new entrant”.
