jargon /si:'ber-kruhd/ 1. (Coined by Ted Nelson) Obfuscatory
tech-talk. Verbiage with a high MEGO factor. The computer
equivalent of bureaucratese.
2. Incomprehensible stuff embedded in e-mail. First there
were the "Received" headers that show how mail flows through
headers and part boundaries, and now huge blocks of hex for
digital signatures and certificates of authenticity. This
stuff all has a purpose and good user interfaces should hide
it, but all too often users are forced to wade through it.
