Hubs are springing up everywhere

Is 'Hub' the new buzzword? My local shopping centre has now declared the area of sandwich shops and cafes a Food Hub. Lots of other examples, perhaps you have noticed them. Transport hub, anyone?

Maybe hub is short for huberistic?

I heard a lot of 'hub' words this morning on Radio4 during a short discussion about 'London Hub Airports' involving Tim Yeo and a transport planner. Evan Davies was the presenter. 'Hub-capacity' and 'hub-connectivity' also got a mention.

Closer to home there is now a major transport hub beside Hampden Park, Glasgow.

Given that a dictionary definition of the word is:- "A center of activity or interest; a focal point."

I suppose it's a valid term, but yes, I have noticed an increase in the use of 'hub' of late.
