It is, in fact, in use, though I'm not sure how widely. I first heard it used by John Plunkett, the art director at Wired, and I think it's it fairly widespread usage throughout Wired Ventures. I'm surprised it's not in Wired Style. I almost included it in the book version of Jargon Watch and I'm not even sure why I didn't. A quick search on AltaVista yields 259 matches (Web) and 49 (Usenet).
