Okay, Enough With the Acronyms!

Look, I’m not the sharpest or savviest user there is.  But when it’s a good thing that the author of an (old) Firefox review includes a definition for every other acronym (I feel I should be calling them acry’s or something), there’s something wrong.  There are several dictionaries for these random [expletive deleted] collections of letters that increasingly defining our lives.  Wi-fi.  DSL.  (Do you really know what it means?  Digital Subscriber Line, and I had to look it up again at HowStuffWorks.com even though I watched it come and read all the articles.)  Increasingly we’re defined by these little collections of letters. 

 

…And one day, we’ll just forget how to talk to each other, trapped in all the acronyms and algorythms.
