Worder

Anyone who use personal computers only for writing, just like a typewriter machine.

"Nah, he's just a worder!"

Slacktivism

Supporting a cause in the laziest way possible, usually on social media. You feel like you're helping without getting out of your chair.

"I see in my feed you retweeted every single ice bucket challenge video. You should get an award for your slacktivism."

    Thought this could be on Slack which would make audience even smaller. "I've done my part in the movement since I discussed it in my private Slack group."

Startup/Big Co Power Couple

When one member of a relationship works at a more well-known tech company, while the other works on a startup. This ensures that the couple can at least pay rent while the other member of the relationship pursues something new.

Because Milly works at Netflix and Erik is working in a startup revolving biotic limbs, they are are a strong startup/bigco power couple who're said to be going places while still being relatively secure.

Tech Stars

An incubator people apply to when getting rejected from YC. They aren't definitively worst it just always happens to be your second choice every time.

I gotta move to Boston now that we got into Tech Stars and need a semi reputable incubator.

Haashole

A student pursuing an undergraduate, Masters, or PhD degree from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

I don't know whether to add Derrick to our Hackathon team. He's just a Haashole who tries too hard and doesn't understand how anything works. He's a great bullshiter though so maybe he would be useful for the presentation.

Glasshole

Refers to some users of Google Glass that were rude or not respectful of privacy such as recording video of people without their permission. Google even referenced this term in their Google Glass do's and don'ts list. It was put together because glassholes ruin public perception of the device and impede mainstream adoption.

Justin: That glasshole has been recoding video of us in the corner. He can at least say something

East Bay Startups

Despite mainstream view, they indeed exist are are growing more and more prevalent. With the absurd prices in San Francisco and Palo Alto, areas in Downtown Oakland, Emeryville, and pockets of Berkeley have seen increased growth in new company offices.

Many also consider living in the East Bay incredibly convenient, despite it's reputation for crime. It is often asked whether east bay startups should be considered apart of "Silicon Valley," to which many reply..."meh close enough."

Winston: Where is your startup office located good sir.

James: Oakland son.

Winston: I am not familiar with this Oak-Land. How far is it from Sand Hill Road?

The Five Dollar Footlong Lean Startup Diet

When a startup founder lives off of five dollar foot long sandwiches to save money for his or her early stage venture. They buy a single five dollar foot long subway sandwich, eat half of it in the afternoon and the other half at dinner.

Since Julius is on the five dollar day long diet, he only eats footlong subway sandwiches everyday to conserve his companies startup money. It's kind of sad.

Slacking

Using a productivity tool called Slack to get work done or communicate with one's team. This can easily be confused to mean "not doing one's work."

Jack: You've been getting alot done.

James: Yeah man, I've been slacking all day.

VC Money

Modern day Robinhood.
Taking money from your parent's retirement pension and redistributing it to early adopters of technology in Silicon Valley.

Friend 1: "How do you have so many free meals from Munchery? Have you ever paid for a single meal?"
Friend 2: "Nope. VC Money"

Facebook Reach

Facebook reach is the number of people that see posts from Facebook pages. Organic Facebook reach has dropped since Facebook made changes to their feed algorithm to encourage companies to buy ads promoting page posts.

It's almost pointless for our startup to promote our Facebook page because we will have to pay to get any Facebook reach.

Tweetstorm

When somebody wants to tweet something that is more than 140 characters but is not considerate enough to link to a blog post or use an image. Tweets in a tweetstorm are generally numbered and look like a mini essay in your Twitter feed.

Gluttonygramming

Programming and working at a slower pace to purposely get more food out of the company.

Jordan didn't feel like cooking dinner so he started gluttonygramming to force the company employee policy of paying a 15$ credit for engineer's dinner who works until after 7.

Jeremy Lin

The perfect child. A Harvard graduate and now a player in the NBA. He is often used in reference by parents (especially in Palo Alto where he went to High School) to "motivate" their child to do better in all aspects of life.

Krishna Lee: Mom, I got into UCLA!
Mom: "WHY YOU NO LIKE JEREMY LIN. HE GO TO HARVARD AND PLAY IN NBA."
