Changing Ms to Bs

When setting a valuation to ones industry, this refers to changing the numbers on one's presentation slides to reflect that the industry they are disrupting is worth billions not millions. Investors aren't looking to put money in million dollar companies as much as they are ready to invest in potential billion dollar ones.

"Back then I didn't know what the hell a Pitch Deck was. Sam Altman looked at my slides and told me to change all the ms to bs because thats the only thing that interests investors. "

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!

Customer churn

Customer churn refers to when a customer (player, subscriber, user, etc.) ceases his or her relationship with a company. Online businesses typically treat a customer as churned once a particular amount of time has elapsed since the customer's last interaction with the site or service.

Sky customer services uses a newer and far more accurate approach to customer churn prediction: at the core of Sky’s ability to accurately predict which customers will churn is a unique method of calculating customer lifetime value for each and every customer. - http://qwikfix.co.uk/sky-customer-services/

404

The lights are blinkenflashen but nobody’s home. This is usually applied to a vacant person who has no clue, with no clue that they have no clue. Named after a server response code issued when you try to visit a webpage that simply isn’t there.

Did you see Tom's last tweet? He clearly thinks UX stands for Undeniable Expert. What a 404!
