Andrew Coates blogs about words that are over-used at Microsoft. I guess I do know what he is talking about. One of my beloved co-workers starts most sentences with “Hey!”, but I’m not telling who it is ; )
I’ve taken to using the non-word “anyhoo” a little too much, but I think that is blog specific.
Let me see…more MS verbiage…
jazzed …have you ever heard anyone anywhere else use that word? I haven’t?
synch-up, synch back, etc….lots of synching going on here
sched plus, S+, sked plus…we mean send a meeting request (refers to an old feature name in outlook)
planful…yes I am serious…I think I may have used it myself once or twice…I like it
value-add, added-value…reminds me of super-sizing your order at McDs.
Oh yes, I used the word “coopetition” last week. And I am very fond of those little quotation mark things you do with your fingers but more in a funny way than an obnoxious way (I hope).
I’m sure there’s some sociology study that shows that people that form a community develop their own language (like twins). I know that we aren’t that rare.
