Bird is the word. Bird is also the winged beast that pooped on your car. Oh, and Bird is a basketball god.

Brilliant stuff from Inman over at The Oatmeal. On “making things,” working as a writer, working from home, working on the internet. (via Some thoughts and musings about making things for the web - The Oatmeal)

My more in-depth musings on the word, “passion.”

In its new, overexposed phase, passion has come to mean something else. I’d hazard the definition ‘an outsized, all-consuming enthusiasm that leads to achievement.’ That seems to be where passion is drifting in our outcome-driven society: It’s become a word signifying the precondition of success.
I love this. I do (currently and in various contexts in the past) write for an educational institution. In the marketing of “success,” or the words I use to manufacture a feeling that one can become a “success,” I tend to stay away from the word “passion.” Precisely for this reason.

GIF is word of the year. Thanks in part to Tumblr hitting 20 billion blog posts in March.

We’re dominating the lexicon.  Now if we can only agree on how it’s pronounced.
