‘Excuse Me, but “Proactive” and “Paradigm”? Aren’t These Just Buzzwords That Dumb People Use to Sound Important?’

Company-wide memos from Yahoo’s board and interim CEO. The one from the board — “Jerry, David, Roy” — reads like something that was written in English, translated to another language by a computer, then translated back from that language to the bureaucratic dialect of English. The one from interim CEO Tim Morse isn’t much better. So many words to say nothing at all.
