When I started this Panopticonic blog on November 27, 2008, there was no such word as “Panopticonic” in the world. I invented the meaning of the idea and applied it to an invented word.
I created “Panopticonic” to give this blog a unique meaning in an identifiable niche.

Here’s the fantastic proof of the power of the invented “Panopticonic” as returned by Google.

I am especially impressed with the SEO links, the Twitter account using
my made up word, and the Reddit link to the “Panopticonic Media War.”

I feel divinely imitated!

“Panopticonic” is doing well and I predict that word and meaning will certainly outlive me — and that’s the whole point of invention, right?

    David! Google, Bing, Twitter…the world, the known and perhaps unknown universe….WOW! Perhaps you will be more than immortal if there is such a possibility? Hmmm.



  4. It has often been said the secret to living a spectacular human life is to become immortal… and then die… without leaving a trace of you behind. With the internet and its data bits, we always leave a bit of residue wherever we land.



  5. […] on September 2, 2010 by David W. Boles We know “Panopticonic” is not really a word.  “Panopticonic” is really a “word” I invented for my Boles Network Blog by the same name.  When I started the Panopticonic blog, […]
