A great little piece in the Guardian by Julia Carrie Wong and Matthew Cantor on How to Speak Silicon Valley.
A few of my favourites:
5G (n) – The next generation of mobile internet, which promises to enable digital surveillance at blindingly fast speeds.
privacy (n) – Archaic. The concept of maintaining control over one’s personal information.
UX designer (n) The person responsible for a website or app user’s experience (UX). They make the buttons they want you to click on – Share! Buy! Sign Up! – large and noticeable, and the buttons that turn off location tracking very small.
Oh, I just read the sub-head: Your guide to understanding an industry where capitalism is euphemized. 🔥, as the the kids say.
