Annoying Geospatial Buzzwords

I’ve put a jar on my desk that I must put money in every time I say either “consume” or “rich client”. I can’t stand either term and people use it so often it gets slammed in my head. I feel dirty every time I say consume in a presentation.

People just come up with new words to describe the things we’ve been doing for years and sound like they are hipper/smarter than the rest of us.

What buzz words really set you off? We need to get a bingo going at the ESRI Developer Summit because I swear they have a buzz word dictionary they use and ESRI Staff gets paid by how many of these horrible words they can use in a sentence.
