a story made up to fit a phrase.
The population are getting older so more pensioners will be drinking.
The streets are hardly appealing for old timers to take a stroll on are they?
Amazing that someone comes up with a phrase like that, only to say that the subjects aren't behaving in the way the label suggests. Genius!
Probably came up with 'Saga Lout' on a drinking binge, pondering their own old age......
I don't like ICT as it's a pointless new name for IT, and there's really no need to change.
On the other hand, I often find that an IT related article can be tiresome if IT is mentioned too often, as it's similar to using caps to emphasise the word it. It can really break up the flow when reading. Like having internal Tourette Syndrome, I suppose.
When speaking though, IT has done the job for years, and I don't see any need to change that.
So my minority vote of no wasn't due to liking the term, but I wouldn't be offended by seeing ICT as the written form of IT.
Re: Glass Houses
Sorry about my previous comment.
You should definitely read the whole of any article, and the linked items before commenting.
the 'idoit' spelling is intentional.
(I'm glad I said I hadn't read it all though. Almost like I knew I'd need a disclaimer.)
Having followed the link to the sample chapter, I realised it was a bit long to read at work, and picked a heading I liked the look of as a sample of the sample.
I chose this section: 'Stopping The Proceedings With Idiocy', which begins: 'This box is the creation of a true idoit.'
I don't think this quite ranks as "the greatest accomplishment of idoicy I’ve ever seen.", but I do think that you should make sure you don't make mistakes when you set out to expose those of others.
