Survival of the Digital Fittest

Article first published as Survival of the Digital Fittest on Technorati.

It’s hard to keep up these days. iPhone this. Android that. App for this. Location-based for that.
I for one was happy to come across the Digital Journalist’s Survival Guide: A Glossary of Tech Terms You Should Know which was posted on PoynterOnline. The glossary provides terms related to Web standards, programming, online tools, social networking, online advertising and basic technology.

Chances are that you’ll find you’re familiar with a good number of the terms and recognize others by name but would be hard-pressed to define them if you had to.  Since links and Google have simplified what you have to save to your brain’s hard drive and recall with your personal memory chips, bookmarking the list and knowing you can call upon it when you need to should give you the reassurance you may need.

Take a look at the glossary. What terms would you add to the list?
