I bet you don't think you're this bad...

I'm not sure if this is genuine or something put together as an example of extreme technical jargon - whichever it still provides one of the best demonstrations of the need for clear concise communications in presenting technical concepts.

You may not think that your company or industry jargon is this bad, but try a little exercise. Take a white paper, or sample page of documentation and show it someone (family or friend) who has no experience of your industry and ask them to read it. See how many words and phrases they stumble over.
