Sentence: At my office we have an innovasion problem. There is a camera so that my boss can monitor us to make sure we are working; a software program that sends alerts if we go on any personal kinds of websites; a sensor beeper that goes off if we stand by the coffee maker more than fifteen minutes (our allotted break); and now he has installed a siren that will blare if the bathroom door is not reopened within ten minutes of someone entering the bathroom.

Pronunciation: snoop see o lo gy

Sentence: The trusted Dr. C Awl’s latest podcast of his students’ latest studies into what people do when they think nobody’s looking reached a conclusion that privacy no longer exists. Further research by the observed snoopsyologist will undoubtedly uncover even less about what we already know, or want to know, about people we don’t know. Dr. C. Awl does contend thick presence of various forms of surveillance will eliminate “gossip”, or “hearsay” as well as “curiosity” as eventually all will be heard and seen by all. The only really safe people will be the deaf and blind.

Etymology: From snoop (to spy on) and "ology" (any branch of knowledge or a science.)


Dr. C Awl, snoopsyologist, was a great create! - silveryaspen, 2009-02-28: 16:09:00
