A fews days ago Syren kindly posted some definitions for a member in a help forum.
At the time I PM'd her some alternatives (But didn't post them as we didn't have a strictly non-serious forum). If anyone has any other alternative definitions then add them in here please. If you have proper definitions then add them to Syrens post.
Blog: Electronic equivelent of teenage angst diary, full of who they love today, who they love tomorrow, and how to save the world with 2 coke cans and a ball of string. Regularly updated for the first few weeks then sporadically updated when someone remembers. Now being promoted - by people who must have a vested interest - as the next great marketing tool.
Flash: Annoying, very high bandwidth using movie, with no use other than to look pretty. Designed by the same marketing people who make tv ads that tell you nothing but cost a lot and win art awards. The same people wrongly think a flash site will wow their customers rather than annoy the heck out of them. Needs large download of flash plug-in, often contains audio/music - which is useless as most people don't have their speakers switched on - and will happily lock up your pc and make you re-boot in frustration.
Before anyone tells me off - the above are meant to be humerous not accurate.
