A Link A Day # 27: Inventify

When me & my partner-in-crime Avinash Subramaniam founded Wordmint (a blog that mints neords), we thought it was cool to coin words. Now after discovering this website, I am wondering if it has taken the charm out of the sport of neologisms. Perhaps I am over-reacting. Because all this software does is to give you a laundry list of long words with new prefixes and suffixes. You still have to imagineer a meaning for it. On the upside, if you have a difficult naming assignment, Inventify might be a useful tool to arrive at a dot-com friendly name.

What a mess. But I guess something useful could come out of it. Nice digg.
