What do we call this thing?

A few of the guys at NRO have grown tired of referring to this as the "blogosphere." The word is awkward, and it doesn't apply to a lot of the new media. Phrases such as "new media" and "young media" haven't really applied or stuck, either.

Ace over at Ace of Spades has suggested the term "Shadow Media." I like it. Catchy, mysterious, descriptive. My own thoughts involved pajamas. Something like "Pajama Media," or so forth. I think Ace's label is much better.

What do you think? What would you call the new media, which includes the "blogosphere"?
