I Just Invented A New Word!


"Serendipitology" is a word I invented around 3am on Feb. 8, 2012 in a Motel 6 hotel room in Anchorage, Alaska. I immediately tweeted about it. Then I Googled it and found only a few minor references (screen grab). As of this date, Google shows only one user name and one minor journal reference. Otherwise, the term is virgin!

Within a couple of hours, I registered this domain (serendipitology.com) to stake my claim to the word. Although I claim creator credit, I want the word to remain in the public domain, free and open to whoever wants to use it (for non-commercial purposes). I want the world to see what a valuable word it is!

Of course, the base word "serendipty" is not my own. That word is defined roughly as "making fortunate discoveries my accident". My own flash of inspiration is to think you can study the nature of such events, even if they are random in themselves. Serendipitology is akin to chaos theory except that it applies more to personal creativity than to physics.

Serendipitology turns out to be a very important concept! On this website, I hope to explore the term and all its implications. However, for now I only have time to record the birth of the word itself.

This is my word. I invented it. And over the next days, years and decades, I hope to explore
what it means.
