The term “life hack”was coined by technology journalist Danny O’Brien during the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in San Diego, California way back 2004. He used this term to describe the embarrassing scripts and shortcuts productive IT professionals use to get their work done. The after his presentation, his term spread out in tech and blogging community. Later then, O’Brien and blogger Merlin Mann co-presented a session called “Life Hacks Live”at the 2005 O’Reilly Emerging Technology conference. They co-authored then a column entitled “Life Hacks” for O’Reilly’s Make magazine that debuted in February 2005.
The American Dialect Society voted then the term lifehack (as one word), as the runner-up for the most useful word behind podcast of the year 2005. Oxford Dictionaries Online then added this word in June 2011 as one of the newly registered words in an English dictionary.
