i think a whole new vocabulary is opening up within the
sociology/anthropology field - and i spend hours pondering on terms like:-
cyberplace
cybercommunity
cyberethnography
reality
place and space

how about explaining how you 'meet' ppl

maybe also 'nicknames' need to be in there too

my glossary contains words like - avatar, browser, cookie, emoticon, hacker,
hardware, software, html, jpeg, virus, protocol, pixel, RAM, ROM, search
engine, shortcut, surf etc
