Homer Simpson knows words

Jargon works against inter-disciplinary discovery, according to Stephen Taylor, co-author of Blogspotting, one of BusinessWeek's web logs. The words, he suggests, are exclusionary.

That notion drew a number responses, including one from Dave Taylor who believes that jargon is an evolutionary improvement that makes the complex more precise. It doesn't preclude discovery, he says, which is hard to architect and a spontaneous development anyway.

Stephen and Dave know diddly-do.

Guys, everyone by now understands that neologisms, not jargon, are inclusive. Take D'OH! for example. Some words have universal appeal.
