Steam Rises

There are articles on both GameSpy.com and Shacknews about Steam, an upcoming broadband delivery system from Valve Software that hasn't really been formally discussed, although it was recently rolled out in a semi-public beta test (story). Each article elaborates on the Steam broadband content delivery system, describing a tool that purchasers of Valve's games will make transparent use of to get game patches and the like that may also be licensed by outside companies for other forms of content delivery. Each article also offers quotes from Valve's Gabe Newell, while GameSpy's piece also features quotes from Doug Lombardi with the Shack's offering screenshots of the Steam interface along with a mention of plans for an accompanying instant-messaging client called "Tracker."

You almost convinced me that since everyone else does it, it logically means that it can't possibly affect anyone.

Almost.

Funny, though, that made me think of something. There was a word like that that started quite some time ago, and it's still used today. It's used in pop songs, and everything, like the "faggot" example. Plus, it's highly inflaming towards the people it was originally used to describe, before it's meaning started getting permutated, again -- just like the "faggot" example. I wish I could remember what it was.

It begins with a "n", I think. Well, anyway, thank goodness that word doesn't offend anyone either!
