5. Museums of Failure - Any library, centre, or museum with the words "George W. Bush" in the title.

6. OurPod - Sharing an iPod with someone else.

7. Sharity - "I've got something no one else has got, so now I'll make it available to everybody online, for free." From Simon Reynolds' great book, Retromania.

9. Twibel - Libel on Twitter.

10. Twidiot - Idiot on Twitter.
