About this dictionary

Tech Buzzwords is a crowdsourced dictionary containing definitions of technical terms, rhetorical talking points, and technology metaphors.

These terms create narratives in the news, set up policy discussions, and hide ideological and political implications.

They are important because they are powerful, so we invite you to help us define them.
