Talking sense about acronyms, initialisms, abbreviations, and neologisms - without bullshit
The technology industry has to be one of the most severely acronym'd industries out there.

> Abbreviations, initialisms, acronyms, and neologisms are jargon. You want to keep the density of jargon in your writing low to make it as readable as possible. Writing full of unfamiliar jargon is a struggle to parse, and perpetuates the curse of knowledge.

It would do us well to use less of them.
