BuzzPhraser (tm)

Buzz words have no place in human communication. The IT industry is horrible about using phases like "data management solution" and "telecommunications device." If it's a phone, call it a phone. Humans do not talk to each other using words like these, and it violates one of the guidelines of the Cluetrain Manifesto: Speak with a human voice.

Doc Searls developed a TecnoLatin phrase generator called BuzzPhraser for those who need to develop buzz words on the fly.

Doc points out, "two MIT graduate students not only wrote their own BuzzPhraser for generating academish jargeury, but got its output accepted as a legitimate paper."
