  1. Hello, I am a graduate student at Western Kentucky University studying cyberculture. What are some computer-technology-specific jargon that you or others have used while conversing with other computer-literate individuals (ex. tweeking, surfing, overclocking, etc.). Thanks in advance for your help.
