In Internet governance parlance, some words and terms are used over and over again – ad nauseum. Read through the IGF transcripts, for example, and you’ll know what I mean.
I’ve made a rough list of such words and I’m wondering whether the people who use them realise how over-used some words are. Are they used on purpose, to make the speaker/author/blogger sound complex, forward-looking, and impressive? Or are they deliberately used to fill in the silence and convey as little meaning as possible?
Below is my list of the 8 most over-used terms which have by now attracted more than their fair share of attention.
