Mmm, bacn

August 23rd, 2007 9 Comments

footloose200.jpgWe all know what spam is by now, the digital variety, not the gelatin-coated mystery meat in a tin. The attendees of PodCamp2 in Pittsburgh have coined the term bacn to describe “email you want, but not right now”.

Examples of bacn:

Of course in true 2.0 fashion, bacn cannot be spelled correctly because there already is a Bacon. You know the one. Oh yeah, and some meat too. What do vegetarians and vegans think of this meat-naming movement? I think tofu would have done nicely instead. Plus, it’s correctly spelled. Let’s start the tofu not bacn movement.
Anyway, bacn can’t be for real yet because:

  1. It has no Wikipedia entry.
  2. The Triad of Truth (Arrington, Om Malik, Scoble) haven’t acknowledged it as newsworthy yet.
  3. It’s not on Techmeme.
  4. It wasn’t coined in the Valley.

LOLcat sez: Srsly. Bacn r 4 reel. All ur bacn r belong 2 us.

    Surely it should be ‘tfu’ or even better ‘tof’ or just ‘u’ or ‘tu’ for the French audience same thing.
