On Data and Jargon by Phil Simon.

From the post:

I was recently viewing an online presentation from my friend Scott Berkun. In it, Scott uses austere slides like the one with this simple bromide:

I really like that.

Are we hiding from crowds behind our jargon?

If yes, why? What do we have to lose? What do we have to gain by not hiding?
