I thought I had slept through 1999. Silly me.
mousetrap, v. This internet slang termS refers to using a script that prevents a visitor from leaving a web site.

Memory must be playing tricks on me. I would have pegged the coinage of “blog” to the year 1997.
“Apparently” it was Peter Merholz who first used the term on his, well, blog in April 1999.
bling, n. The hip-hop term for ostentatious jewelry debuts.
I’d be interested to know whether the synonym “bling-bling” preceded “bling” or vice-versa.
