I was born in the fifties and there are a lot of words I wouldn't have expected in my birth year, such as computerize, RAM and clip-art. I would've expected it to be a lot later that they became widely enough used to be put in the dictionary.
On the other hand, there are words that I would've expected to have been in use earlier. I can see myself spending time rumaging through this site!
A lot of entries from my birth year. Real interesting ones like: Botox, cisgender, cybercafe, MP3, pole dancing, roofie, rootkit, IM, LASIK, spyware, and... wifebeater.
Seems reasonable enough to me, although I would have thought something like 'roofie' would have been added in the 80s and not the 90s. Everything else aligns pretty well. The early 90s were a wild time.
