Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind.
This seems to be a periodic theme. Back in the 90s I read an article about Linux programming words becoming Germanized. E.g., grep is a key search program, and so in English it becomes the verb 'to grep' and in German 'greppen,' (or something like that) I believe. Language is fun.
Wow, that's really cool--and blogworthy :D
