1. A very small particle; a speck: “Dust motes hung in a slant of sunlight” (Anne Tyler).
2. A slight moral defect is likened to a mote .
But, Wiki states it as:
"to embarass or patronize either with or without malice, especially in a case of situational irony; short for demote; "And as Elizabeth tripped
Frank--causing him to drop his soda--Andrew, who was looking on happily, shouted, "Moted!""
Wiki also states this about MOTE's:
"Smartdust is a hypothetical network of tiny wireless microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors, robots, or devices, installed with wireless
communications, that can detect anything from light and temperature, to vibrations, etc."
I will reserve the rest of my thoughts on this, its best.
