Being a geek means knowing your jargon. Almost all geeks have these things in common [as far as I know].
- They like naming stuff
- They hate explaining stuff
Let me be more clear. Here are just a few terms that are fashionable at this moment, off the top of my head. Lets see how much you can recognize. Of course, I can only list the ones that I've heard of. All links lead to Wikipedia.
- RSS [I'll kill any of my friends that don't know this yet, I've spent hours explaining it]
- Semantic Web
- URI [URL's are passé]
- Podcasting [Really cool]
- Blogs [See RSS above]
- XUL [for Mozilla geeks]
- Bookmarklets [can't live without them]
I know [basically] what each of those terms mean. But don't ask me to explain them.
