It's tough to get ones coined in 2003. You generally don't notice new words
until they've been around for a while. "Taikonaut" is a good one, it's been
around since 2000 at least.

On my website, someone suggested "ubritquitous", meaning the quality of seeing
images of Britney Spears everywhere you look.
