We Are Electronic Eskimoes

If Eskimos have 30 words for snow, and Buddhists have 30 words for consciousness, don’t modern Americans likewise have well over 30 words for electronic communication?

For Example: Blog, Browser, Cable TV, Cell Phone, Chat Session, Credit / Debit Card, Direct Deposit, Download, DVD, E-Mail, Fax, JPEG, Moneygram, MP3, Newsfeed, Packet, PDF, Posting, RSS Feed, Spam, Telegram, Telephone, Television, Text Message, Tweet / Update, URL, Video Clip, Voicemail, Walkie-Talkie, Webmail, Website, Wire Transfer.

Therefore, in the varieties of our 21st century experience, we are Electronic Eskimos!

(NOTE: This idea was too big for a Tweet, so I had to Blog it.)
