Dr Johnson would certainly have been interested in the site Wordia (pictured above) which invites people from all walks of life to think of a word that has special meaning to them, talk about it on video and have it uploaded into the 'visual dictionary'.

Tomorrow Dr Nicholas Cambridge - the Chairman of the Johnson Society of London and a former GP - will be talking about the word scrofula. You can leave comments on individual definitions or even link to uses of the word on Twitter (I'd venture to suggest that only Dr Johnson himself is liable to be tweeting about scrofula, but you never know).
