IT = Idiosyncratic Technocrats

I have been trying to view IT from a non-IT point of view for a while now. Ironically I do belong to the IT bandwagon, thought am not all too merry about it :) under the current circumstances. Little did I know 13 years back how all-pervasive and banal it would turn into. So here is a little quirk of these crackpots brought to your noice ;).

The clause "High Level" is used to hint at something obscure for a person. Likewise the clause "Low Level" is used to indicate something down to earth to graps - "piece of cake", no complication. Any pedestrian learned person would concur with this, wouldn't they?

Unless he belong to IT, who would argue that a "High Level Language" is easy to understand, whilst "Low Level Language" are obstruce.

And and rationalization for it - "from a certain point of view YES what you say is right, but blah blah blah" *sigh*, as if he /she were as insightful as Darth Sidious trying to convince Anakin that Good and Bad are just a point of view.

What a bunch of oddballs =))

Just as languages of cultures mix, these things are bound to happen. Tech lingo permeates official lingo.

Thats the most beautiful thing about software. That more often than not, you agree to disagree!

@hiren: we talk so much of intuitiveness, but we get down to changing it all backwards. Its inevitable, but just that no one takes the time to notice such things

@sci: Mr.T ;) "I agree" :D
