Lesson #5: Take conversations about off-label use (and, IMHO
, adverse events) off line and into existing processes and procedures.
My list is too long, too negative -- having lived through every since DSF -- I can say that they are nothing like they used to be -- the offers aren't as strong, the activities are too widespread -- DSF has become too 'posh' IMHO
, and don't get me started on the GV!" (Global Village)
Jargon such as "IMHO
" for "in my humble opinion" and emoticons such as smiley faces have crept insidiously into work-related e-mails.
In the first quarterly update of 2011, the OED included a number of new initialisms in its pages, to wit, LOL, BFF, IMHO
, and OMG (that's laugh out loud, best friends forever, in my humble opinion, and oh my God), thus legitimizing the terms used by millions in texts, e-mails, and instant messages.
From the ubiquitous 'lol' (laugh out loud) to imho
(in my humble opinion), new additions are made to our everyday lexicon.
After all, Voltaire once famously said that the perfect is the enemy of the good but, IMHO
, the enemy of the good is more often "not ready yet."
Telegraph operators in the mid-19th century used abbreviations such as IMHO
("In my humble opinion") and FWIW ("For what it's worth") when communicating among themselves, according to the 1998 book "The Victorian Internet" by Tom Standage.
In the years since this study was published, a few other writing center researchers (Blau, et al.; Black; Gilewicz and Thonus; Murphy) have analyzed transcripts of tutor-student conversations to study such things as self-presentation styles, gender conflicts, power relationships, and affective response, but the number and frequency of such studies are too few and too far between, IMHO
. If talk, conversation, and teaching are at the center of a writing center's praxis and pedagogy, then it only makes sense that we should continue using every technique in our methodological took kit to study and understand them.
The repression reveals the bankruptcy of the Zionist regime and its excessive paranoia that will IMHO
eventually lead to its demise.
From time to time (far too frequently, IMHO
), customers lose their image, though this can often be resolved by simply firing off a signal to the set-top box.
From Asian perspective one wouldn't support such a closed & rather expensive (IMHO
does the term 'extortionist' apply here?) DRM based business model at all.
