Delightful compendium from Bryan Alexander. I particularly like:
Analytics, n. pl. “The use of numbers to confirm existing prejudices, and the design of complex systems to generate these numbers.”
Big data. n. pl. 1.When ordinary surveillance just isn’t enough.
Failure, n. 1. A temporary practice educators encourage in students, which schools then ruthlessly, publicly, and permanently punish.
Forum, n. 1. Social Darwinism using 1980s technology.
World Wide Web, n. A strange new technology, the reality of which can be fended off or ignored through the LMS, proprietary databases, non-linking mobile apps, and judicious use of login requirements.
