Leaning In

When someone flamboyantly promotes and espouses feminism in an attempt to get laid.

Jonathan if you want to get women to like you, stop being such a pretentious asshole and start leaning in for once.

On-demand Worker

An on-demand worker is someone employed by an on-demand company such as Uber, Lyft, Instacart or Postmates although many on-demand workers work for a few of these companies concurrently. They are usually 1099 workers or independent contractors and do not get the same company benefits such as healthcare and PTO that full time employees enjoy. Companies hire on-demand workers for flexibility, to save money and to have less liability.

Tim: Although being an on-demand worker affords me fewer benefits I kinda like it because I can set my own hours and learn how to code on the side.

The 'Porn At The End Of The Tunnel' VR Hypothesis

The hypothesis that says that no matter HOW good or bad VR software is developed, VR pornography will pave the way for the platform's future.

Sora: VR is just a fad. People are not going to want to spend more than a month using it. It's a pain to use and it makes me sick to be in their for too long. LETS STOP DEVELOPING FOR VR PLATFORMS. THEY'RE NEVER GONNA SUCCEED.

Wang: Stop thinking rationally and just remember the 'porn at the end of the tunnel.'

Sora: You're right. I'm getting back to work.

Ponytail Bias

When you automatically assume someone is a great engineer because of their ponytail. This bias most often occurs with men who also have metal glasses frames and a beard that goes down to their neck.

James often experiences pony tail bias when he visits Seattle even though he's really a musician who plays with a band no ones ever heard of.

Angel Investor

The typical Angel Investor can be found in its natural habit, either grazing in the open pastures of tech conferences or herding in secret groups with other Angel Investors. If you happen to be lucky enough to encounter an Angel Investor in the wild, don't try to feed it with Buzzwords as it would run away. Instead, be honest and and try to listen more than you speak.

Hannah: Duuude, I met this Angel Investor at the conference last week and it was sooo cool! I even got a picture

Jack: Woah! They really do have wings

Social Media

One of the species of apps that keep getting made. They're really just shitty clones of Facebook and Twitter. I mean if Google couldn't do it, what makes you think you could? It is estimated that every year:
Hundreds of thousands of variants of social media apps are pitched
Thousands are built to an MVP
A couple hundred end up on the app store as different niche apps after the companies pivoted

Alex: Hey Tara, check out my new Social Media app!
Tara: Oohh! Next Facebook right here!

Fracking

Creating underground sub-communities within larger social sites (such as Reddit). Vile, nasty, unsavory and questionable content is then pumped into these underground sub-communities. The goal is to either bring legions of impressionable, immature people to their cause (such as misogyny for the purpose of taking out Hillary Clinton - much like the Tea Party's hatred of blacks), or to simply create an earthquake that brings down Internet communities. The goal here is to abuse so-called "free speech" rights to the point of destruction of the host.

Since President Obama faced no more elections, the conservative/libertarian weirdos fracking Reddit with racism, now switched to misogyny by using Ellen Pao as a proxy for Hillary Clinton.
