- Blend of work and leisure, coined by American sociologist Dalton Conley (born 1969). (Wiktionary)
“To take the growth of "weisure" (Conley loves making up compound words like that) for example, he remarks on the generally recognized growth of people working from home (and the history of the tax deduction for home offices was one of the few bits of the book that surprised me) and shopping at work, but also argues that "networking" forces people to turn their social interactions into an extension of work.”
“Gen Yers spend so much time using social media at work that a New York University Professor coined the term "weisure" which refers to people who use what was once their free time for work and their work time for socializing.”
“In this way, Twitter can be a virtual form of weisure -- a mix work and leisure.”

“Technology is a major contributor to weisure time.”
“We first wrote about staycations in April 2008 and documented how the recession (or he-cession) prompted lifestyle changes like paycations, weisure, and unitasking.”
“And anxiety over the recession is undoubtedly another cause of weisure: Workers seem to be more inclined to check in more during their vacations, perhaps out for fear of falling behind or losing favor with the boss.”
