From http://www.psfk.com/2007/12/w00t-another-word-of-the-year-reflecting-the-sentiment-of-the-year.html
"While the New Oxford American Dictionary raised its glass to locavore as its chosen Word of the Year (beating out cougar and social graph), Merriam-Webster proved itself the Dictionary of the People by letting the public pick their 2007 honoree. The winning word based on votes from the dictionarys website was woot, an acronym that emerged from the online gaming community that stands for we own the other team. Though usually represented with double zeroes instead of Os ( its a gamer thing), woot has already reached a level of prevalence in everyday conversation as an exclamation of triumph or joy. [Woot is an] ideal choice because it blends whimsy and new technology, says M-W president John Morse."

Well, the cute one, of course!!

Okay, I'm the chubby little kid with the huge head, the baby of the family. It's circa 1947.

I don't know which is more valuable; the definition of w00t or the revelation of your infant identity evil6

I have used "woot" since 2002. People on MORPG's (massive online roleplaying games) have used it for years, thus the word crops up in younger people's vocabulary (not that I am one..younger that is) and those that play online roleplaying games often.
