Definitionitis

I wonder if back in the time of Gnaeus Flavius they had heated debates about the meaning of legal terms, and had bragging rights as to who came up with the catchy phrase: Cui testimonium defuerit, is tertiis diebus ob portum obvagulatum ito. (One who seeks the testimony from an absent person should wail before his doorway every third day) . 

The blogsphere is awash with definitionitis.  Web 2.0, SaaS, Enterprise 2.0  I’m also infected, but Nicholas Carr has it really bad.
