Modern, curated, and other words we (mis)use
I am continually amazed by the enduring power of words in our oh-so-modern world (and I say this of course as an unrepentant wordsmith). For example: last week I watched a webinar by GlassDoor in which they talked about ‘traditional job boards’ – i.e., everyone but GlassDoor – and ‘modern job boards’ (yep, that would be GlassDoor). Traditional versus modern. Gee, which one should I pick? What a great piece of reframing, eh? (And I’m not picking on GlassDoor per se, so don’t come after me with pitchforks!).
