Perhaps you have heard that the Oxford Dictionary has added the verb; Google to their dictionary. As in; google it or I googled you. This is good news and bad news for the company. Bad news in that it jeopardizes their Brand Name Trademarks in all the English Speaking Countries, but good news in that it increases their brand awareness, as they are now officially a word in the English Language.
Nevertheless, many sectors and sub-sectors of the Internet still need words to be listed in the Oxford Dictionary, such as Ezine, Ezines and Ezining. And why not make Ezine a noun as in Electronic online newsletter or magazine and also a verb as well? How so you ask? Well simple consider the phrase; Ezine It.
Ezine and Ezining an article would have a definition; submitting an article intended for mass distribution by Ezine Publishers to put the article in their publication, which would be sent out via email. It could also be an action of an Ezine Publisher to Fling it out to their subscribers like a Frisbee, they are Ezining your article in mass email distribution.
It is about time that Ezine and Ezining become part of the human language as there are now nearly 50,000 writers writing articles and submitting them for mass distribution. Consider all this in 2006 and let us get a petition going too.
