Bacn. It’s better than spam.
Coined by Chris Brogan
Moreover, it's those e-mails you get from sites (such as Twitter, Facebook, Viddler), that you want, but don't really have time for.
Bacn is a step above spam, and a step below personal e-mail.
"Dude, I got so much bacn, today!"
"Sorry I lost your e-mail in all the bacn."
Bacn falls somewhere between spam and personal e-mails, an example being a 'friend request' e-mail.
Bacn consists of the following: MySpace friend requests, PayPal payment receipts, electronic bills, email list digests, twitter follow messages, etc.
Origin: PodCamp Pittsburgh 2, Pittsburgh, PA, August 18-19, 2007.
