Cypherpunks make the OED :-)

James Gleick's NYT article on the OED mentions "cypherpunk"
among the words recently added to the dictionary.

The page requires registration to access, though there are enough
popular pseudonyms that have done so; I don't know if any of the
"cypherpunks/somepassword" combinations still work;
I've been using one of the no-response email systems for my login.

I don't have a subscription to the online dictionary to
see what they said about it.
