Jargon Scout

Edited and published by Keith Dawson, Jargon Scout is an irregular feature of TBTF "that aims to give you advance warning -- preferably before Wired Magazine picks it up -- of jargon that is just about ready to hatch into the Net's language." At the Jargon site, visitors will find definitions and etymology for a number Internet or technology-related words. For instance, "emailingering," "innocent by-sender," and "dog-food (verb)"; the last originates from internal Microsoft jargon and is "established to mean that software developers should actually use the products they develop" (e.g., eat our own dog-food). Visitors are also invited to participate in inventing new jargon, especially in the "jargonated job titles" section.
