Three Buzzwords you think you understand

What's the Buzz?

A few years ago, back in my college days, I was sitting in a class on writing for communication (as opposed to writing fiction, I suppose). Anyway, the prof was telling us how technical people are so prone to using jargon, and how bad that was for communication. “Never use jargon”, she said, “unless you are speaking to someone from your own industry”.

She never mentioned buzzwords, but I expect her advice would have been the same.
