Jack Dorsey

Founder of Square and Twitter. He reads alot of books on self-improvement and tries to build a zen-like culture within the work place like a poor man's Phil Jackson.

Jack Dorsey made us hold hands after the meeting today in a circle. It was awkward because I hear Stacy doesn't wash her hands after going to the bathroom.

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.

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?

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."

CS Fix My Shit Fallacy

The false assumption that anyone who can code or has a computer science degree can fix your computer or any household electronics.

Marco: Because computerz are basically more advance toasterz.

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.

SoLoMo

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

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.

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?”

Lewis: Facebook is down.

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...

This is Uber

What a passenger will say to turn down their Uber driver when he attempts to start a conversion or expects a fist bump. This happens because of the high percentage of Uber drivers that also drive for Lyft.

Driver: Man the weather is really nice today. Where are you headed?
Chris: This is Uber.

Vestigial Code

A code probably once served a purpose, but doesn't anymore. You're afraid of removing it because after years it just looks right the way it is.

In evolutionary biology vestigial organs are the ones an organism probably once used but no longer serve a purpose today.

James: Dude help me debug my new one button app, "Dude."
Zeeshan: What is all this? None of it serves a purpose.
James: It's vestigial code that makes gives me confidence when making something new. I've just built everything on top of my dayspan code from freshman year until now. I commented it out, don't worry.
Zeeshan: You're a terrible human being, you know that?
