Google is awarded the mightiest of titles: it's Word of the Decade!
There was also voting for a variety of other categories (PDF): tweet was voted their word of 2009 (even though the Oxford University Press already had already decided on 'unfriend' -- which are we to believe?!) Sexting failed to pick up the award for 'most outrageous' -- and fail won the 'most useful' category. Hooray!
Back to Word of the Decade: other nominees were: 9/11, blog, text, war on terror and Wi-Fi. Google picked up twice as many votes as blog -- and both of them completely destroyed the other nominees.
I suppose it has to be asked... what's your word of the decade?
