Language is constantly being morphed and created just to keep up with the rapid advancement of technology with which we live, i.e., we now have objects and experiences that didn't exist even 20 years ago.
To wit...when you are in a roomful of people and someone's cell phone vibrates or rings, and every single person immediately reaches into their pocket or purse and checks their screen...that mass motion -- that very specific collective call to action? There needs to be a word for that, gottdamnit. Bring me that word.
