Bokeh is the word I am thinking of today.
I came across this word as I was reading a book on digital photography. It can be pronounced boh-kay or boh-kuh. In addition to being an interesting word, it would score well in the game of Scrabble.
Definition of bokeh—The aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It can also mean “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.”
A photo having a smooth, silky-looking out-of-focus area behind the main subject is said to have a nice bokeh.
The word bokeh is from the Japanese language. It’s a translation of “mental haze.”
Technology really isn’t fading way but some applications maybe be subject to fading.
I recently came across the word blogfade or blog fade, if you prefer.
Blogfade occurs when a person sets up a blog and starts posting to it, only to abandon or forget about it later. Neglecting a blog can be causes by many factors including losing your initial enthusiasm, realizing it is a lot of work, etc. Sometimes blogs fade because the person responsible for it on an organization leaves.
Closely related to blogfade is podcast fade. The concept is the same. Someone starts a podcasts, putting up new episodes on a regular and consistent basis. Again, for whatever reason, they stop doing this.
