I just wasted spent two hours hearing about dictionaries and words and the internet and google. And something about google book search (which I am about to try to find) and finding snippets of books. And then there was a long bit about copyright and the history of dictionaries.

BTW, if you are a wordoholic, check out The Professor and the Madman for a fascinating story about the establishment of the OED (Oxford English Dictionary).

Darn it all--I've left enough time to vacuum the house. Didn't mean to do that.
