New Word: intek

I needed a new word, so I just made one.

intek: hybrid of "internalize" and ancient Greek "teknik"

intek: To go from a state of knowing a craft or skill theoretically to knowing how to perform that craft or skill in the real world.

I was sitting in Pacific Coffee thinking about business. There's a lot of things I know in a theoretical sense right now, but I haven't built into myself to the point where they're running smoothly. The same concept could apply to anything that needs real world practice - you know something in theory, but in practice you're still doing it wrong.

As far as I know, there's no great word for this. Before "intek", you have theoretical knowledge. After intekking, you can now do in the real world and really know it at a deeper and more meaningful level.

This page is out of date as of late 2011. We'll get a new version up at some point, but don't hold your breath. There's some good crazy posts lately though, look at November and December 2011 as a jumping off point.
