Shit Show Episode #7

IS it Navajo? Klingon? Esperanto? or heavens help us is it Qwghlmian?

No…it’s geek.


Seriously, what the hell is it with our industries ability to make words up, spew out acronyms and do our level best to flummox and alienate anyone NOT like us? WE have a communication problem and yet we keep on inventing more and more obscure words and phrases to describe what we’re doing.

So, this week we’re going to unpack that shit.

We’re going to get out the translators AND break down some of the stupidity that is geek speak and translate it TO plain and simple English that everyone can understand.

We’re NOT dumbing it down, because that implies the non-technical folks “won’t understand” but we WILL demystify, deconstruct and break down some of the language barriers

Oh, and along the way we’re going to help us build a compendium that I’m in the middle of doing!

Join us OR die in a sea of acronyms that rivals that of the Military!!

The Security Shit Show is LIVE tonight (6/25) @ 10pm CDT -

Killer Robots? Oh Shit.

If you missed last week’s episode, the Security Shit Show crew tackled the difficult discussion about morals and ethics. There are two ways to treat you ears and/or eyes (not likely) to Episode #5, "Moral and Ethical Shit in a Shitty World" : YouTube (video) Podcast (audio) It was an really good episode. A little bit of shit-slinging, but mostly just great discussion and opinion. If you like our shit, you should subscribe to our shit. Subscribe on YouTube or whatever your favorite podcast thingy is. Rumor has it, the shit will only get better and better! Episode #5 - Killer Robots? Oh Shit. Alright, we’re ready for the next episode of the Security Shit Show! Shout out to a helpful (and maybe even loyal) viewer Robert Hodges for calling our attention to a neat article titled “ Should 'Killer Robots' Be Banned? ”. Do killer robots sound like a good idea to you? Think about it... Certainly, Chris, Evan, and Ryan will have a few things to say about the topic.

What's the Security Shit Show?

If you don't want your life to stink, quit standing in shit. The Security Shit Show is a podcast that three friends put together; Ryan Cloutier, Chris Roberts, and Evan Francen.
