When you shouldn’t use EA jargon and how to avoid it

For this weekend’s EA Global Student Summit I wrote a short talk about jargon that’s popular in the EA community. It covers:

  • When it’s good to use

  • When it’s best to avoid

  • Alternatives to common jargon terms

  • Words I think we should mostly stop using

  • Why people bicker about this, and a tiny piece of philosophy of language.

Folks liked it on social media and jargon has been a regular topic here on the EA Forum, so I thought I’d share.
