Blogs,RSS Wikkis and Mashups

Steve makes the comment here about the use of new cool phrases by MS presenters.

execs bashing out the words “mashup” with increasing frequency. My guess though is that over 70% of the audience doesn’t know what mashup is so I’ll be back soon to explain more.

I have to agree with him. I had to explain to four people yesterday what a wikki was and two people what RSS was.The use of these terms at a conference where the content is aimed at mid to senior management is clouding the message a bit. Mind you it has had the effect of educating so maybe not all bad.
