Geek Speak 2007

Engineering & Science Humor - RF CafeThese engineering and science tech-centric jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.

Humor #1, #2, #3

According to an article in Popular Science, the following new words/phrases have been recently added to the lexicon of Geekese.

  • Anthropocene Epoch:

    The most recent period in the Earth's history, starting in the 18th century when the activities of the human race first began to have a significant global impact on the Earth's climate and ecosystems. The term was coined in 2000 by the Nobel Prize winning scientist Paul Crutzen.

  • Blogical:

    Illogical online ramblings.

  • Carbon Justice:

    The "righteous" and equitable distribution of carbon assets amongst the inhabitants of the world. This concept metes out carbon footprint allocations equally to the unproductive as well as the productive people on Earth. Cum ba ya, man.

  • Cloud Computing:

    Distributed computing on a global scale. The "clouds" (clusters) of computers permit massive number crunching, available to just about anyone, without needing to bear the cost of high-dollar and high-maintenance computer banks.

  • Exergaming:

    Video games that serve a dual purpose of providing online entertainment and giuding the user through exercise routines.

  • Fud:

    Acronym meaning "Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt." A marketing misinformation ploy used to instill a sense of unease about competitors' new product introductions.

  • Ground-Truthing:

    Making an in-person visit to a location mentioned on the Internet in order to ascertain first-hand whether the facts are as presented.

  • Physmatics:

    Describes the every-blurrying line between pure mathematics and pure physics. E.G., Stephan Hawking has been described as a physmatician.

  • Witricity:

    Short for "wireless electricity," which is the transmission of energy through the air in order to power devices without the need for batteries or a power cord.
