Meaningless words (for a bingo game) #innovation #assemblages #iterative #recombinant

Meaningless words which should be mocked into oblivion, but won’t be, because we all of us like those crutches, fnords and throat-clearers, don’t we…

  • Innovation
  • Partnership
  • Resilience
  • Holistic (I heard, on the radio the other day, a woman justifying smoking in pregnancy as part of her “holistic” self-care. While I am with her against the therapeutic state colonising the lifeworld and all that, I do think she may be using the term a little self-servingly. But I’m a non-smoker who’s not likely to get pregnant any time soon.)

Pet words of those further along the intellectual cul-de-sac that passes for intelligence these days;

  • Assemblages
  • Iterative
  • Recombinant
  • Trading Zones
