Digeratedium

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /dij-uh-rah-TEE-dee-um/

Sentence: Ken and Julie would blog about everything — detailing all of the digeratedium of their lives that nobody else really cares about. When they got engaged, they started a website, and wrote about all the minutiae of their wedding planning. Then they started a new blog when they got a cat, and posted pictures and stories about what it did that day, and what it might be saying if it could talk. Now they have a baby. Reading the daily pregnancy updates were mind-numbing, but the pages of text they'd write each time baby Ryan spit up or filled his diaper were enough to induce a coma.

Etymology: Digerati - people who often use, or are knowledgeable about, digital technologies (from dig[ital] + [lit]erati "computer literate") + Tedium - the quality or state of being wearisome; irksomeness; tedious (from Latin, tædium "weariness, disgust")
