Jigsaw and The Washington Post try to explain tech jargon with their new Sideways Dictionary

When it comes to understanding and writing about technology, one of the biggest challenges is dealing with all the insider-y terminology — particularly because it can feel so removed from everyday experience.

Now Alphabet’s tech incubator Jigsaw is working with The Washington Post on a new way to offer these explanations. Called the Sideways Dictionary, the focus is on analogies rather than traditional definitions — for example, BitCoin is “like digital gold,” while a zero-dayvulnerability is “like medics discovering a new virus.”
