What a Tangled Web We Weave.

Webmaster, domain, portal, hack, and scroll. I'm interested that these words that we so frequently use now to refer to the Internet were used so long ago to refer to a different magic.

I was in a seminar today, and the presenter inconsequently used the word knack. What a terrific word. It has a very nice snap to it. Not a robust mouth-feel, but the effortless proficiency it represents, isn't weighted with effort. Have a nice day.
