"Infosnacking" is the 2005 word of the year. It's chosen by the editors of Webster's New World College Dictionary.

They define "infosnacking" as those stolen moments at work at which we sneak1 time to handle personal e-mail, Google sports scores, old friends or shop online.

"Podcast" was the word chosen by editors of the New Oxford2 American Dictionary. The "Podcast" is audio that can be downloaded onto a computer or an iPod and enjoy whenever you want. I do believe we offer a few at the NPR website.

Now finishing just behind "infosnacking" in the poll of Webster's editors was the word "portafuel", which refers to hand snacks, that are considered marginally more healthy than fast food.

And the expression "perfect storm", which after this year's hurricanes jumped from meteorology and George Clooney's lips into the common usage.

Webster's cautions that winning word of the year does not guarantee a word eventual3 inclusion in their dictionary. Past word winners include "e-" to precede anything that transpires4 over the Internet. And "senior moment", which, uh...I just can't remember right now.
