Nice pad, cool threads

Jack Mottram, posting in his new TypePad beta-blog This Pad Kills Fascists predicts that ‘pad’ will replace ‘blog’ as the term of art for these personal-journal-weblog-chronologged sites we write:

I’m sure that Pad is destined become a standard synonym for Weblog. This is a good thing on two counts: firstly, since it means both ‘home’ and ‘place to write,’ Pad reflects the evolution of personal publishing beyond simply logging the web; secondly, it doesn’t sound completely bloody stupid when spoken, which Blog undoubtedly does.
