SIGSEGV in my brane. 28 Jan 2008
opinion miscellaneous

I'm not proud of it, but I do read TechCrunch every now and again, if for only the occasional gem that comes across that causes me to hate buzzwords and everybody that uses them.

In the second paragraph of this article almost caused an entire system shutdown in my central-buzzword-processing unit (CBU):

"Both Imeem and Anywhere.FM saw a lot of synergy in the deal."

I couldn't read any further into the article after reading that, whenever anybody uses the word "synergy" seriously I have a tendency to tune out completely and think the absolute worst of them until they offer me chocolates, caffeine or other goodies.
