What’s one word between friends?

So it appears the department I work for will be changed from “New Media and Technology” to “Future Media and Technology”.

One word – so big a difference. Well according to the Oxford English Dictionary…

New
Not previously existing; now made or brought into existence for the first time.
Of a kind now first invented or introduced; novel, newfangled; original.
Future
that is to be, or will be, hereafter.

So there you go…

Of course I didn’t like to point out that the stuff I work on has been in existence for several years and is certainly not “to be” but more “been”.
