  • Are ‘intranet’ and ‘extranet’ outdated words? Are there better terms?

  • Jarring jargon — IT never at a loss for words

    If IT were to be charged with one crime, it should be abuse of the English language. Who is to blame for these "words" -- words that should be kept at the bottom of an extensible repository rather than at the top of one's mission-critical vocabulary? These bad words leave many of us speechless.
