Net - Records

WebLog Languages that can't combine sounds to form a new word face interesting challenges when expressing new concepts. Computer has been translated into "electronic brain" and computer trainer into "teacher of the electronic brain": 电脑教师. The term Blog, which is pretty new, has a nice symbol and meaning: 网记 Records (or Memories) of the net. So taken literally it means: Blogs are the memory of the internet. How thoughtful.
