Jargon. Everybody loves a bit of jargon donâ€™t they?
Whatever your job role youâ€™ll no doubt have developed a set of letters, phrases or codes you use every day, perhaps without realising that someone outside of your circle wouldnâ€™t have a clue what youâ€™re talking about. It starts from an early age too â€“ would anyone over the age of 25 know what ROFL, TBH or AYTMTB means? 1
This blog is meant to be the start of an information management â€˜jargon bustingâ€™ glossary. Hopefully it will highlight some of the confusion that can be caused by misunderstanding different terms, but it should also serve as a reminder that digital information needs to be labelled carefully if weâ€™re going to find and understand its value in the future.
- 1. ROFL = Roll on the Floor Laughing; TBH = To Be Honest; AYTMTB = And Youâ€™re Telling Me This Because. Give yourself five points for each correct answer. Please note that points do not mean prizes of any kind. ^
