The wisdom of crowds: "w00t!" voted word of the year.

On the list of things I like to think about when I'm bored thinking of other things, this is in the top 50. Classic question: should English dictionaries adapt to what is spoken, or should English speakers adapt to what is written (in those dang dictionaries)?

hint: the evolution of language happens (you mean you don't breeze through Early Modern English e.g. KJV 1611?) , so practicals and nuanced answers are a must. Historical linguistics, w00t!
