communicopia

blending; noun
a company that is at a cutting-edge of synergy between television and computers.
 
The term may have been coined as a way to expressively show how the combination of television and the Internet in a company places the company in a better state than one without this combination. The use of cornucopia might show that the company has an abundance of knowledge or gifted minds within the company, since the word does not pertain to computers specifically.
Etymology : communicate 'make known', from Latin communicatus + cornucopia 'abundance', from Latin cornu copiæ 'horn of plenty'
Source : "It seems that the mainstream media is really becoming a communicopia, considering how often they've used the Internet while reporting on news." — conversation, October 2008
