I think there should be a new word describing somebody who has presence all over the web 1

In the spirit of the recent Oxford Dictionary of English announcement about the introduction of “tweetup” into their dictionary, I thought it was time to develop a word for someone who has a presence all over the internet.

In the spirit of polymath and polyglot

Polyweb

Noun – A polyweb is a person who has an online presence across many different websites.


Needless to say, I’m a prime example…

My blogs

Profiles on social networking sites

Contributions I’ve made / profiles on sites where I’ve generated content

And I shouldn’t leave out Retaggr, an aggregator of profiles.

That’s just off the top of my head. I’m sure if I gave it some thought, I could find a few dozen more sites that I’ve tried out for a few days and left behind.

Should we mount a campaign for inclusion in next year’s new words list? Let me know what you think in the comments.
