Hack is the new Magic

It's pretty likely that you will be a subject of scorn and ridicule if you explain things you don't understand as "magical", "mystical", or acts of God. So in the technology realm it seems that popular media uses "hack" in place of "magic". I've started using the following word replacements when reading online "news':

  • hack = magic
  • nerd = witch
  • geek = wizard
  • cyber = medieval
  • code = incantation
  • jailbreak = dark magic
  • DRM = white magic
  • enhance = magnify
It really makes reading the online "news" more magical!
