Russell Davies offers up an interesting bit of etymology (at least I think it would count as etymology):
Which reminded me of the origins of the word ‘cliche’ – in the days of movable type it meant a set of letters/words that were used together so frequently that the printer didn’t bother dismantling them. Which got me think about the cliches we’re building, and about one in particular – the screen.
I enjoyed that one. The rest of the post/presentation is worth reading as well.
