How to Play Buzzword Bingo 2012-2013
View more presentations from ron mader







Background

Traditionally, bingo is a board game.

A bingo card has a 5x5 grid with the center being a "free space." When you hear a word or phrase on your card, mark it off. When you mark off five spaces in a straight or diagonal line, you win!

You are cordially invited to print, favorite, tag or incorporate any of these words, wiki pages, posters and individual 'cards' into media of your choice. Use new words in tweets and blog comments surprise your friends. The objective here is to making learning language less threatening and more fun.

More recently 'buzzword bingo' has come to epitomize the overused jargon heard at boring conferences. Check out IBM Buzzword Bingo

Quotes

If you want to change the way people think, you can educate them, brainwash them, bribe them, drug them. Or you can teach them a few carefully chosen new words with the power to change the way you see the world (or as the Germans would say, these words might warp your Weltanschauung).
- Howard Rheingold, They Have a Word for It

For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice.
- T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets


A new word is like a fresh seed sown on the ground of the discussion.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein

The problem with academic-style weasel words is that they don’t add value but they do add stress.
- Valere Tjolle
