Maritime Software: On the Origin of Meaning

Maritime Software: On the Origin of Meaning

The IT sector, like most other industries, is awash with technical jargon, terminology, acronyms and abbreviations that have very specific meanings. More than most other major industries, however, TechSpeak - the language of IT people - is regularly co-opted into the language of the everyday.
