A friend of mine came  JUL 20 2000

A friend of mine came up with a new bit of geek jargon a while back:

Flashturbation n. The practice of using Macromedia Flash on Web sites for nothing more than demonstrating its cool "whiz-bang" features.

Sample usage: Did you see all of the Flashturbation going on over at KPMG's Web site?

Go ahead, use "Flashturbation" in your next conversation or rant about the misuse of Flash. (thanks to Dack for the truly Flashturbatory KPMG link)
