Adjectives and awesome.
« on: June 28, 2013, 02:38:16 PM »
With a burst of social media art activity sometimes limited to 140 characters, I find myself describing many things with the goal of exciting the public about our projects. Everything is “awesome.”  “Awesome” is being devalued! How many things can actually be awesome. In a web search, I found a nice list of adjectives which relate to the word awesome. I find it very exciting to see that this word can be both positive or negative!
