Bacn – A new Internet term

Posted by kiwiscanfly on August 22, 2007

bacn When you receive email that Geek is now following you on Twitter and Jennifer Gold just wrote on your Facebook wall, that’s bacn (pronounced “bacon”). It’s any email you receive that isn’t spam, but isn’t exactly a personal message either. Your electronic phone bill is bacn. Your Google alerts are bacn.

Bacn. It’s better than spam.

Disclaimer: I had nothing to do with coming up with this term. This was something some of the folks at PodCamp Pittsburgh came up with. I’m not sure who started it. Andy Quayle, Tommy Vallier, Jesse Hambley, and I don’t know who else were at Ground Zero of the discussion.
