The computer revolution, like many of the technologies that preceded it, is producing an abundance of new terms and catchphrases that are making their way into the English language. In this lively account, computerese expert John A. Barry chronicles an important linguistic development which he has termed 'technobabble': the pervasive and indiscriminate use of computer terminology, especially as it is applied to situations that have nothing at all to do with technology.
