Look Up Definitions

Do you find yourself smiling knowingly when your boss mentions that well-known business principle you’ve never heard of? Overwhelmed with “geek speak”? Chances are Google’s heard it mentioned—and possibly even defined—somewhere before.

Most specialized vocabularies remain, for the most part, fairly static; words don’t suddenly change their meaning all that often. Not so with technical and computer-related jargon. It seems like every 12 seconds someone comes up with a new buzzword or term relating to computers or the Internet, and then 12 minutes later it becomes obsolete or means something completely different—often more than one thing at a time. Maybe it’s not that bad. It just feels that way.
