Buzzword Bingo

RSS Feed RSS feed   

The Buzzword Bingo forum is a place to post examples of ludicrous, convoluted and meaningless buzzwords and marketing drivel dreamed up by those seeking to sound more important and meaningful than they actually are.

We are developers, which means our job is to simplify complicated and ill-expressed requirements in order to produce something elegant and useful. If you want to impress us then please just tell it to us straight. The less pre-processing we have to do the more we will be interested.

Synergy gets used a lot where I work. I despise the word. Its even been used in naming a new business initiative.

"Technology and Business Synergy Association"

Whatever that's supposed to mean.
Comments from work:
  • "Why can't you just do it like everybody else?"
  • "Well, we haven't had any complaints yet."
  • "I just want to get it into production."
I'm in space!
I know you are mate. Yep, we're both in space.
SPAAAACE!
