: Netzeitung, the German online newspaper, interviews Thomas Burg, the organizer of the BlogTalk conference in Vienna, and we see this wonderful exchange (don’t worry: you don’t have to speak German to enjoy the joke):
Netzeitung: Werden Weblogs zu sehr gehypt?
Burg: Nein, ich denke zu wenig.
Netzeitung: Are weblogs over-hyped?
Burg: No, too little, I think.
Don’t you love it: Gehypt. What a great verb for our age. It’s the Gawker of verbs. I was with a bunch of people last night and told them about it and they all started using it, as in: Madonna’s too gehypt.
