Link Rot
The process by which links on a web page became as obsolete as
the sites they're connected to change location or die.

Chip Jewelry
A euphamism for old computers destined to be scrapped or turned
into decorative ornaments.

A badly written or profoundly useless Java applet.

A new hire who doesn't need any training. "The new guy, John, is
great. He's totally plug-and-play."

World Wide Wait
The real meaning of WWW.

A hard-core CGI script programmer with all the social skills and
charisma of a plastic action figure.

Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web message
"404, URL Not Found," meaning that the document you've tried
to access can't be located.

Scanning the net, databases, print media, or research papers
looking for the mention of your name.

Graybar Land
The place you go while you're staring at a computer that's
processing something very slowly (while you watch the gray bar
creep across the screen).

Open-Collar Workers
People who work at home or telecommute.

Cobweb Site
A World Wide Web Site that hasn't been updated for a long time.
A dead web page.

Keyboard Plaque
The disgusting buildup of dirt and crud found on computer

Alpha Geek
The most knowledgable, technically proficient person in an office
or work group. "Ask Larry, he's the alpha geek around here."

The rarified organizational layers beginning just above the rack
and file. Decisions that fall from the adminisphere are often
profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were
designed to solve.

To take note of a person for future reference (a metaphor
borrowed from web browsers).
