initial commit

After using the `git init` command, "initial commit" is the overused futile message used when committing the initial code to a repo

Person A: I just started a new project and "initial commit" seems boring
Person B: I always just use what http://whatthecommit.com/ gives me
Person A: "Copywrite Microsoft 1978" it is

    If you are actually a 10x enough dude to use a random initial commit message: git config --global alias.yolo '!git commit -m "$(curl -s whatthecommit.com/index.txt)"' git yolo

        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?

          Quora is an excuse for bloggers who don't want to admit they blog.

        A developer that rocks the code hard, while looking good, dressing well and being adored by colleagues and fans alike.

        Mary-Ellen: How come no other developers are like Angus?
        Johnboy: He's a rockstar. They are rare, because it's a long way to the top (if you wanna rock 'n' roll).

            Burn Rate

            Burn rate is the rate at which companies spend.

            Alot of startups have absurdly high burn rates which is the antithesis of why investors generally invest in software companies in the first place.

            High burn rates for a company less than 20 months old is an easy sign of telling whether startup founders are retarded and only made it that far by being likable and well connected. Most of the time high burn rates aren't warranted and it's an easy sign of telling that a group has no fucking clue what they're doing.

            A bunch of my Stanford classmates graduated and raised money from their prototype. I could tell they're burn rate was high even after raising so much money. Any idiot could see their traction didn't warrant the spending. They closed after a year and are now working on new startups. I pity the early investors who will sink their teeth into the next batch of hot bullshit they oven roast and serve in their next venture.

                fitpick

                Term for a freshly developed community-app, which often reaches a "Unicorn-Status" within a short period of time. Once it's on the stock market, buyers refer to it as a "fitpick" (high valued and profitable company) or "blue chip" and therefore try to get hold of any possible stock shares.

                Mr. Quainoo: "We are witnessing this highly regarded fitpick becoming a global player and a multi-million dollar company within a very short period of time!"

                Mr. Yamrali: "From now on there are no boundaries.."

                  Beast Mode

                  Partially derived from the sports world (Marshawn Lynch going beast mode in the NFL). It is when you are super busy and have deadlines. You put on earplugs/headphones and drink caffeine in an attempt to knock out work/coding.

                  Did you see Rohan? He went beast mode on that compiler program today and finished it on time.
                  Man! Andrew went beastmode on my escalated technical cases today. Awesome!

                      D2F ratio

                      D2F ratio or "dick to floor" ratio is used to determine the relationship between two or more men and the distance between their penises and the floor. Often used to calculate the most efficient way to jerk off men at TechCrunch Disrupt events.

                      Guy 1: How do we jerk off 4 men at the same time and dick swap them to maximize jerking?
                      Guy 2: Well we'd have to figure out the D2F ratio and group men based on that.

                        Guy 1: Hey we have two email newsletters. Which one do you think would return a more sales?
                        Guy 2: Don't know, let's use some A/B testing and see which one performs better.

                          An incredibly corny way of saying CTO.

                          I stopped paying attention to my European friend's pitch deck as soon as he referred to his CTO as the chief wizard on the intro slide.

                            Augmented Reality

                            If you've never seen an augmented reality app before augmented reality is sort of like having helpful pop ups follow you in real life that are marketed to have a stronger use case than simply looking something up on your phone. They are normally seen through a headset or camera lens.

                            Google glass has made me incredibly disenchanted with augmented reality apps after having used the device for a long period of time. Every strong social use case out there seems to be a gross violation of privacy.

                              Someone in an early company whose prescience is so negative and soul sucking that nearly every happy memory you've had when with them dissipates.

                              Dementors originiate as fictional creatures that guard a wizard prison in the Harry Potter series

                              Ronald and Perry are startup dementors who help destroy the early companies they join with their consistent negativity and thoughtless criticism.

                                Made famous by Steve Job's and Steve Wozniak's founding of Apple in a modest garage in Los Altos. Now a term used by startup founders to appear frugal to investors or to express "started from the bottom now we here" sentiments

                                "We are a billionaire dollar company now but do you remember those days when we worked out of a garage?"
