: : : I have often sat through corporate meetings and marvelled at some people's ability to deliver a discourse consisting entirely of buzz words and phrases, but managing to avoid saying anything at all. In some respects I consider this to be quite a skill, albeit a complete waste of our time.
: : : So does anyone know the origin of 'buzz word'?
: : I don't know the origin but you might like to entertain yourself and others at your next meeting by playing Buzzword Bingo. From the site below, you can print a bingo card with a 5x5 grid. Each square contains a buzzword. Mark each one you hear and when you have five across, down or diagonally, shout 'Bingo!!' and wave your card in the air.

: : Ha ha, with some of the dropkicks I've worked with, I'd never get through some of the meetings without repeatedly shouting 'Bingo'!
I'll look up "buzzword" when I get home to my library.
