This entry stems entirely from a gross misspelling/mishandling of the word "proletariat" on my part. "Protolariat" is not a real word; if you search for it nothing comes up. What better opportunity to create a new word and be the only search engine result for it? :)

So, what should the definition be? I’m thinking something along the lines of:

  • An incomplete model of string theory
  • A poorly-executed or work-in-progress "Web 2.0" site; possibly derogatory. "Friendster is a real protolariat"
  • Mushroom juice
  • A long piece of rope with a knot at one end

Coining new words with the power of the internet!
