In the early 90s I was a COBOL developer and a bunch of us were sent to a class on Structured Programming, taught by an instructor from Ed Yourdon. About a year after that I was sent to a conference on OOP and guess who the speaker was - Ed Yourdon himself.

That is when I realized that most of these computer buzzwords are primarily geared towards making money for consultants.
