I've been fascinated by how the industry has come to pronounce different tech words, lingo, products, and acronyms. Months ago, I asked my twitter followers for an idea of some good words to have people pronounce in a "game show" style lightning round.
After 31(!!) individual recordings this summer, we shipped the series with friends from all over the tech industry in all kinds of roles.
We threw a slew of tech names and acronyms at them to see how they pronounced them because, hey, most of these words have been made up in the last decade or less to describe a new technology or name for something related to ye'ole computer.
Head over to this AppMap Youtube Playlist to check out all the full length "game show" style lightning rounds.
The best part is the conversations between humans - the relationships with folks from all walks of tech life - and the joy you get from watching the laughter or disgust ensue.
