What's a Conexus?

I'm guessing some of you who've visited my blog may have scratched your heads and wondered, “What’s a Conexus?” Perhaps a few of you think it to be a mythical creature, sprung from my fertile imagination in Napoleon Dynamite-ish fashion, that wears black Converse All-Stars. Some of the more industriously OCD of you may have searched the dictionary for “Conexus,” only to find that no such word exists.

Conexus is a made-up word. It's created from two real words: Connections and Nexus. “Connection” meaning the linking or joining of two or more things, or people. “Nexus” meaning a link associating two or more people, or things.

There you have it, mystery solved... Conexus.
