I was watching some stupid horror movie from the late 90s and the "goth alterna-chick bad girl" character played by the actress who married Tom Cruise I think said this a lot:

"Razor," used kind of like "cool" or "copacetic".

Gizmodo's Sam Biddle despises this word, saying "I hate ping because it means the exact same thing as contact. There's no difference between ping and contact. But when we say ping, we can pretend like we're in a scene from The Social Network, when in fact we're just regular idiots like everyone else. It's also too ambiguous-if someone asks me to ping them, do I text, call, ring a bell in their face? I hate ambiguity in language."

Yeah, I'm wondering that, too. It's a perfectly good food. It's been around for a while. It's not like it's some hipster (heh, had to sneak that in) just went to some South American village and discovered it and brought it back. No, if they "discovered" it, it's in the same way that they "discover" PBR, hunting, etc-- something that's been around for a long time already and they decided to co-opt it for their own douchiness.
 
2012-12-19 05:58:41 PM
I, for one, had never heard "brogrammer" before but, thanks to this article, plan on using it now. Suck it, The Atlantic.

Also, ping has a slightly different meaning than "contact." Contact implies initiating a new thread of conversation. While ping can sometimes be used in that context, it's usually more along the lines of, "We sent Bob an e-mail and it's been a month; someone make sure he's still alive."

Yeah, that's how I see it, too. They can take "ping" off the list and replace it with "action item". We had a project manager that loves that term. The first time he asked me "can you take that as an action item?", I truly had no idea what he meant. I asked. I don't remember what he said, but it was pretty convoluted. I think I finally got it, though. I asked, "when you say, 'take as an action item', do you just mean, 'do'?" He looked kind of pissed, and thought about it, and finally said, "Yes, I guess so." He was fired shortly after that. It was for unrelated reasons, but I like to pretend it was because he used that stupid term.

2012-12-19 06:20:25 PM
I honestly thought "brogrammer" was derogatory and used to make fun of the paradoxical cult of machismo among geeks who vie to outdo each other in stereotypical masculine stupidity, and then when you put them around guys they can't out-macho, suddenly want to play the role of the intelligent, higher organism. You know, the chubby bearded guys who make sexist jokes and talk loudly about drinking beer instead of "pussy chick drinks" and how no real man would ever buy a car with an automatic transmission, and then when a bunch of ripped frat boys or loud macho businessmen come into the bar, they say, "Such neanderthals! Why are those animals in our nice bar bothering us civilized people with their 'ook ook ook?' Look at their silly posturing. It's a good thing there are people like us to uphold civilized standards and the dignity of womenfolk amidst this brutish rabble."

Action Item: Professional Superhero. Seconding. It can take "offline" with it; being outside a meeting does not make something offline. If you MUST re-purpose technical terminology, at least go with "out-of-band" or something vaguely accurate.

scottymac: See also: "craft beer". Should be right up there with "artisanal".


Nope, craft beer is a legitimate term. It defines a brewer that brews more than a microbrewery and less than a major retail brewer. I can't remember the totals, but Red Hook would be a craft brew, and your local produced at the nearest micro brewery wouldn't. If you are having problems with how it's used, that's different than calling for it to be banned. You need to call for it to be used correctly.

Tips for the author. Be quick and short with lists that are this long. Be funnier, Make shorter lists.


The list is doing a job. It's shouting out to the writer's contacts in her New Yorker, NY Times, NY Mag, NYU, etc., circle, who all keep one another working and websites content-happy.

/Notice that if you work with words for a living, you pretty much still have to be in NY, despite the internets.

zedster: moothemagiccow: Ping is fine in its intended use, but I knew this moron coworker who said he'd ping people when he finished an assignment, as a vague substitute for email or IM, and maybe even sms or a phone call.

if all he does is send packages at them and see if they reply it might be okay, the interoffice mail people might hate him for it


I'd just yell "Marco!" and see if anyone yells "Polo!" back, since I wouldn't know where to get a deep-sea sonar unit.

Arkanaut: phaseolus: 'sokay. Since it made it onto the list in tfa, I'm sure everyone's "so over" the word artisanal anyway. Next month we'll all be shopping for 'bespoke sourdough loaves'.

Heh. I was just noticing the other day that this company that I always hear on the radio talking about their "bespoke wood flooring" changed their blurb to "custom wood flooring".


I don't understand new hipster meanings, doesn't "bespoke" just mean "made to order" or at worst, "customized"? Wouldn't ordering a Whopper without pickles be "bespoke"?

SpacemanSpoof: Sybarite: What exactly am I supposed to call quinoa?

Delicious! Especially the way my wife makes it, with some cheese and Peruvian spices mixed in.

\She's Peruvian
\\Was eating quinoa before it was a hipster food



It's funny but it was actually here on Fark that I first heard about the whole hipster connotation. I've just been eating it for the past couple of decades because it made tasty dishes. Turns out I'm some kind of Ur-hipster.

Say what you will about old people hating on new slang, they are nowhere near as annoying as old people who try to use new slang.

A bespoke Whopper would have your own shape bun, meat blend, cook temp, trimmings, etc. It's your baby. If you wanted an ovoid 6-seed 9-grain bun lightly oven-toasted with a shmeer of horseradish mustard, veal/pork patty done medium-pink topped with elk milk gruyère, watercress and artisanal (there's that word again) mayonnaise straight outa Brooklyn, BK's Bespoke Department will happily oblige at a cost of up to 8x our fine quality off-the-rack sammichings.

/Now if I may, your inside leg please Sir.

8x the current 69 cent Whopper promotion would still be a rockin' deal for something like that.

/I know, it won't happen.
