Words to be used more often

In a call with the rest of the iStudio gang today, one of the team was “voluntold” for a small project.  I think that’s such a great word and will be nominating it for word of year, 2007.

We all get voluntold to do stuff but the mark of a good leader is where on the line you feel you are.

If you feel like you’re actually volunteering, you have a great manager, if you feel like you’ve been told, you have a manager.

  1. ‘Voluntold’ is an excellent word and definitely an early contender for word of the year 2007.

    You can find an entry for it and other linguistic leaps forward at http://www.urbandictionary.com.

    I like their Word of the Day feature…including ‘elationship‘ – which is what many of us bloggers are in.

    Ed you should totally nominate it for buzz word of the day: http://www.buzzwhack.com/

  3. Ed,

    I’ve never had never heard of voluntold until your posting…nearly fell out of my chair laughing. I’m voluntold about 8 hours a day.
