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.

SME

An acronym for "Subject Matter Expert". Generally a person designated as the expert in a particular technology, process, or subject area within a company or organization. Often the title is an oxymoron and is given through a bureaucratic process where the person designated as the so called "expert" knows less about the subject than others yet insists on inserting themselves into the decision making process despite their inferior knowledge. They derive their power via their title rather than any actual factual information they may know.

The IT department can't install Chrome because the Browser SME declared that no more than 2 browsers will be supported and he choose IE and Firefox. He didn't provide any factual basis for his decision when it was announced but he did note that he was the browser SME and thus everyone had to abide by his decision.

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.

Engineer Agencies

Agencies run by engineers who pimp out other engineers and themselves to big companies and startups for a per hour/week wage. This can be more lucrative and give more freedom to said engineers who work on their own time.

James sought the help of an Engineer Agency to build an initial version of his OnDemand Condom delivery service for iOS and Android.

Neckbeard

People with facial hair on their neck, most of the time in lieu of their face. Chances are that if a software engineer is a neckbeard they are amoung the highest paid engineers in the company and/or are extremely smart.

I've never seen a neckbeard and a girl in the same photo, but damn they're the closest thing to ancient wizards Silicon Valley has.

Startup Marketing Intern

Free labor for early stage startups that normally do data entry and social media related work. They don't normally get paid but want a job for the summer so are willing to do whatever to add to their embarrassingly empty LinkedIn page.

Jack: Holy shit Max! You're company is huge. You already have 9 people here.

Paul: Don't be too impressed Jack. 7 of them are unpaid marketing interns.

Malware Engineer

An asshole software engineer who creates malware (programs that attack your computer to display advertisements and unwanted pop ups).

Satish: One of my students was a malware engineer who installed malware on my computer after emailing me his homework. Now whenever I plug my Mac into the projector during lecture, Live Jasmine popups keep showing up.

Ryan: Uhh...that's because you have this tab open right here on chrome.

Satish: You weren't supposed to see that.

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.

Reverse Communism

When money is taken from venture capitalists and other wealthy types, and given to coders. Profitability is a vague thing that will happen sometime in the distant future (maybe).

In 1991 communism was defeated, only four years later, the spectre of Reverse Communism haunted the SF bay area from 1995 until the spring of 2001.

LAN Party Mole

The person at your LAN party who uses a ridiculous portion of the bandwidth preventing everyone from playing the game they agreed to gather for.

Microserf

An individual so utterly loyal to a particular operating system or platform that they have achieved a state of religious zeal. Microserfs typically drool in response to a rigged demo.

Dave: How did it go over at the DMV, are they interested?
Larry: No good, their guy Tom says they don't "believe" in Open Source. Says they want us to do it in Silverlight.
Steve: They're all a bunch of microserfs over there!
