sharkjumping: new category

In the grand tradition of Aristotle, Duns Scotus, Bacon (take your pick) and Dewey, I'm adding a new category of knowledge to weblog land - 'sharkjumping'.

Sharkjumping comes from the ontological representation of TV programs - it describes the moment when you know that TV program is no longer... you know what I mean. It's a sub category of 'rant', but expressed as a explanation as to why an entity which is cool or good is no longer cool or good, due to... you know what I mean.

Do add this category to your weblog. It will add value and richness to the weblog noosphere, capturing those defining moments that occur due to emergent phenomena, power laws, and amplified cybernetic feedback loops and so on.

Don't wait up for a formal semantics... you know what I mean.

So did Java jump the shark when it added EJBs?
