Marketroid

The smooth-talking member of the marketing department who signs up users by promising that the next version of the product will have features which are unplanned, extremely difficult to implement, and/or in violation of the laws of physics. By Thursday.

Dave: Did you see that Tom promised the client that end-to-end encryption would be in the next release?!
Larry: But we don't control the user's operating system - how is that even possible?
Steve: Somebody better give that marketroid a crash course in reality.

Jen (the IT manager): Um…

Moleskine

The third magical tool in the Silicon Valley (more San Francisco) designer tool box.

A total poser. He had a MBP and iPhone. Even a decent tat. But he didn't have a Moleskine. That's what gave it away that he wasn't a real serious UX Designer.

Pickup Hacks

A nerdy term thrown around that denotes strategies to ask women (or men) out.

Winston: Yo Bob got any Pickup hacks?

Winston: Fuck, I can't do that. I'm playing DOTA tonight instead.

Lead Investor

When raising a large round of seed money, the lead investor is your headliner that makes it more convincing for other investors to get on board.

After Ashton Kutcher became our lead investor, every bloodsucking leach in the valley decided to send me emails asking if they could get in on the round.

Working Remotely

Sounds fancy, but its basically when someone is too lazy to go to the office so they do minimal work from home. If they do this often enough they take a picture of their computer at a nice coffee shop or dining table saying how lucky they are to have the job they do to mask their small amount of shame.

Lowe: I got 20 likes on my Facebook picture of me working remotely.

Ryan: Your an unfunded startup founder, you ALWAYS work remotely.

Ponyfill

A safe polyfill which doesn’t modify global objects and, as a polyfill, uses the native implementation if it is available. Coined by Sindre Sorhus, who has made many of them.

Bob: And we'll just throw this in as an ES6 polyfill....
Jack: No - it's a ponyfill - don't mix them up. See the `unicorn | approved` tag in the README? Yes, ponyfill - not polyfill.
