New buzzwords for 2007

The New York Times has an article about new words that popped into our language in 2007. Have you heard them?

Colony collapse disorder (about bee hives dying)
lolcat (laughing out loud cat pictures)
global weirding (the whole climate going crazy)

They forgot the word locavore, someone that tries to eat food that is only locally grown (within 100 miles, ca 70 km). I don't like that word that much, I like "ecological local eater" better, or maybe 'ecoloceater'.
