Covfefe

Coverage.

Word was first used by the forty-fifth president of the United States on an online news and social networking service called Twitter, where users post and interact with messages called "tweets", restricted to 140 characters. Twitter was created by four nerds Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams who never dreamed their network would result in the birth of words like this.

Ex1: Uber has been getting alot of bad covfefe lately

Ex2: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe"

Ex3: Ray J leaked his sex tape with Kim Kardashian because he wanted to hurt her tabloid press covfefe. Ironically it ended up making her one of the most famous reality TV stars in the world.

3 Comma Studios

A legendary secret society publicly operating as an app studio in San Francisco, California. While the app studio founders are made public on their website 3CommaStudios.com, its members are kept highly secret, rumored to be having some of the biggest names in tech and venture capital as shadow leaders of a seemingly inconspicuous organization.

It's rumored that every few months the society inducts members by sending them a mysterious black key card with 3 commas embroidered on it. They meet in a secret location and talk about the tech world behind closed doors that open upward like a Lamborghini, not side to side like a Honda Civic. If asked, its members are told to deny their memberships and even scoff at the very thought of it's existence.

The studio's slogan: Do not bite the invisible hand that feeds.

I've heard rumors that Devon was inducted as a member of 3 Comma Studios a few months ago after starting his company. He denies the existence of the organization adamantly. But I saw a black key card with 3 commas in his wallet a few months ago. On top of that he goes out at random times of the night getting dropped home by cars with doors that open upward NOT side to side. Sometimes in the dead of night when I bring it up, he just sticks both his middle fingers up at me and whispers "2 commas be gone" in a trance like state.

Uber Fast Food

When you are hungry during a Uber ride so you tell your driver to go through Mcdonald's drive-through.

Matt: "Honestly, getting Uber Fast Food isn't so bad. It is a little awkward for the Mcdonald's employee to see your driver trying to align the backseat window with the drive-through window so you can pay . Of course if a friend sees you it's also a little embarrassing but that's it."

Macgyverist Product Development

When a founder or group of founders take code that is useless by itself, from their former products, stick it together, and make a prototype/product that is incredibly popular.

Macgyverism is a term used to denote taking seemingly useless things to make something incredible.

Jimmy's new iOS game, Chang goes to India, was a result of macgyverist product development where he took a bunch of useless code from his previous projects, stuck it together in an hour, and shipped it.

Agile

In a medium-sized and growing company, Agile can be a learning experience for everyone.

BigCo managers learn what it's like to ship tiny things instead of meeting about big things.
Software engineers learn what it's like to have parental supervision.
Early employees learn how to quit while they're ahead.

Manager: "We will remove obstacles from your workflow and refrain from micromanagement."
Engineer: "We will regularly estimate our stories and log our work."
Engineer: "Wait a minute, where's Early Employee?"

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
