Code Couple

Programming partners (in work or school) that are also involved with one another romantically.

Jeremy and Liz are the hottest code couple at Stanford. I hear after finishing their compilers projects they hold hands and read quantum computing books until both their bodies are exhausted.

Quora

Quora is a overhyped startup unicorn that is jealous of Reddit's +500 million monthly visitors and was founded by a former Facebook employee. On Quora where you can ask questions about how to get rich, how to pitch investors and gossip about famous companies like Google, Apple and Facebook. Oh, and also stalk Jimmy Wales and Adrian Lamo.

Now seriously: A Q&A website where you can ask questions about anything and have article-length answers written by Top Writers or Ph.D.s who spend nearly 2 hours writing superb answers full of images, graphics and details that are above your comprehension and that later will probably be posted to Gizmodo, TechCrunch, Forbes, BBC, The New York Times, Slate, Buzzfeed, Huffington and Washington Post or any other popular news-media website.

Now seriously, seriously: A Question and Answer website where you can ask and answer questions about any topic and interact with highly intelligent people from all over the world and get happy when your content is sent on their daily email called "Quora Digest" to over a million people.

Tired of that shit, now for real: Quora is the best place on the internet to find the best answer for your questions. (It'd certainly be if it had more users).

Lisa: Hey, Jon, today I got over 200,000 views on my answers on Quora!
Jon: Quora? What's Quora?
Lisa: Quora is a website similar to Yahoo Answers where you can ask and answer a lot of interesting stuff!
Jon: Oh, cool.
Jon: Well, being relevant to that number of people on Twitter or Facebook is a different story, isn't it?

Post Silicon Valley Move Stress Disorder (PSVMSD)

What an investment banker experiences after moving to Silicon Valley because he is no longer at the top of the totem pole.

Lloyd: The other day I was talking to this girl when suddenly this nerdy Facebook employee starts talking to her, not even Mark, just a regular employee... and then she completely ignores me. I work in finance. I repeat, I work in finance. I miss New York.

Disruptive

An adjective to describe a start-up or technology that thrashes resources in the economy, because causing people to lose their means of income and scotching the value of resources is super fun and awesome.

This disruptive vegetable/fruit-picking technology will help migrant laborers lose their jobs so they can go back to their homeland and get decapitated by drug cartels.

This Guy Fucks

Made popular by Russ Hanneman on the Silicon Valley show. It is just something to say when you want to mess with somebody. Meaningless. Could also mean this guy has a lot of sex but its impossible to tell.

Three Commas Club

Three commas to imply a billion dollars as $1,000,000,000 has 3 commas. To be in the three commas club is to be a billionaire.

Richard’s literalness remains the one thing to rattle Russ. “You know what has three commas in it, Richard?” “A sentence with two appositive phrases in it?”

Pivot

We failed. Now, we're starting over, possibly with something completely different.

We started out by building a SoLoMo network for hermits. We've now pivoted to becoming the Uber of door-to-door encyclopedia sales.

SoLoMo

Social + Local + Mobile; interachangeable with LoSoMo, LoMoSo, MoSoLo, MoLoSo or SoMoLo.

In other words - a company who's product is generic as fuck!

Medium Data

The hipster data scientist's new topic of discussion. “Big Data” has become a meaningless cliché, so much so that complaining about Big Data being a cliché is also a cliché.

PM: Can you look at this set of big data? It is 200GB.
Data scientist: That is actually only medium data according to yourdatafitsinram.com

The Rift

A title given to denote virtual reality. Popularized by people who have spent immense amounts of time in an Oculus Rift headset and were unable to fully communicate the things they had seen and experienced while present in what they consider a different realm.

Recruiter: Why should we hire you for our VR division?

Jack: Aye. In my time I have seen many things in the Rift. Things the likes of you, could never imagine...

Recruiter: Why are you crying?

Jack: I held my virtual daughter in my arms as the light vanished from her eyes. I fought dragons in Russia trying to protect the refugees of a city that's now burnt to the ground. I spent almost two years in isolation in the Rift reading about the ancient tombs of Java Script and Lisp. I'm hoping that this position will help me forget about my past. My time in the Rift.

Recruiter: Why am I crying...

Rubber Duck Debugging

Many programmers have had the experience of explaining a programming problem to someone else, possibly even to someone who knows nothing about programming, and then hitting upon the solution in the process of explaining the problem. In describing what the code is supposed to do and observing what it actually does, any incongruity between these two becomes apparent.

"Hey dude, are you talking to someone?" Nah dude, I'm just rubber duck debugging. "Oh cool, thought you were crazy."
