Hackoff.com - The First Blook?

The blogosphere seems to be generating new buzzwords at an amazing rate — we know (at least some of) the following: blogs, cyborglogs, photoblogs, travelblogs, warblogs, soldierblogs, litblogs, moblogs, vlogs, blawgs, splogs, shocklogs, mp3blogs, and a couple more which I might have missed.

Today, I stumbled over the latest hype — blooks (blog + book).

Tom Evslin recently started hackoff.com, a book whose chapters will be published one by one in the form of blog posts. Readers can subscribe to the blook via RSS... The plot is a murder mystery set in the dot-com bubble.

Podiobooks

Another new buzzword I stumbled upon is podiobooks, the podcasting equivalent to blooks, i.e., a book in the form of multiple MP3s on a podcast...

The idea is nice and I might actually try listening to one of those.

There is also at least one

There is also at least one "Blooki" = blog + book + wiki.

Bliki

Thanks for the hint. I knew about bliki (blog + wiki), but blooki is new to me...

I guess there are lots more of these in the wiki and especially podcasting world (my favourite here is godcasting ;-).
