It’s UnsuckIt, an online tool that translates business jargon into regular English. The graphic is a little crude for my taste, by the spirit is admirable. You can browse a list of popular terms, and there’s a handy button to share a term’s translation with a colleague or, as the site puts it, “e-mail the douchebag who used it.” (Via BoingBoing.)

Let’s face it, if we can’t get our point across and communicate effectively we are nowhere. A book comes out next month on this very topic: “27 Powers of Persuasion” by Chris St. Hilaire. Learn how the major leaguers in politics, media and the legal world to it. They’re the professionals when it comes to the craft of persuasion and their tips are in here.
