EN -ogle +d / That sums it up. The lord of the interwebz, they own and control everything from your connection, your domains, your hosting, what you see (and don't see), your whole online identity and much more than you can think of. They offer a lot of comfort and make your life a lot easier and that's cool, but just don't be clueless about it. If you don't pay for a service, you're probably the product.
NL -ogle +d / Daarmee is alles gezegd. Google is de heer en meester van het internet. Zij bezitten en beheren alles, van je verbinding, je domeinen, hosting, wat je ziet en niet ziet, tot je ganse online identiteit en nog veel meer. Ze bieden ook comfort en maken je het leven gemakkelijker. En dat is oké, informeer je gewoon een beetje over waar je mee te maken hebt. Vergeet niet: Als je niet betaalt voor een dienst, ben jij waarschijnlijk het product.
Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.
Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.
So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).
