2007 Word of the Year

Call this a nostalgia piece. It was about this time last year when Webster's Dictionary named "CrackBerry" the 2006 New Word of the Year. And while we were hard at work developing CrackBerry.com prior to that announcement, hearing that good news definitely put us into high gear on getting the site ready for launch (can you believe CrackBerry.com is still less than a year old?!).

The time has come for us to pass the accolade on, and this year's winner is "w00t," which is a "hybrid of letters and numbers used by gamers as an exclamation of happiness or triumph." For full details of why w00t was chosen (and to see the runners up), you can check out the Full Press Release. AND...yes, there is a w00t.com!
