>The Truthiness Paradigm

>

Just a little tidbit from the latest Wired, which has a fun little missive from my boyfriend Stephen Colbert called “Be an Expert on Anything.” I thought some of you Pitt kids might get a kick out of this one:

USE THE WORD ZEITGEIST AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.
Ideally, you want to find words that sound familiar but people don’t really know their definitions; zeitgeist, bildungsroman, doppelganger — better yet, anything Latin. But avoid paradigm. It’s so 1994. If you say the word paradigm, everybody knows you’re a poser.

Take that, Kuhn! OK off to the Rosenbach!
