My technophobe friend had these kind words to say the other day:

 

 

"i don't like your blog because i don't understand a word of what it means

you are a weirdo techie person that has learned a language that is not based on english

i cannnot enter your alien land"

 

 

The funny thing is, she is right.  I often forget that we are all conversant in another language that is not English.  But what exactly should it be called?  I think these unique languages pervade every industry, not just technology.  When I worked in finance, it had its very own language.  To complicate matters more, each company has its very own set of lingo, and acronyms. Enough of this, I'm going to hurt my brain.
