Each Friday I'm going post a "Friday Wondering". These posts are meant to explore & discuss observations or issues which I think would benefit from discussion. Participation is open to absolutely anyone regardless of their expertise or knowledge. Just bring your curiosity!
If you'd like to discuss on Twitter rather than here then why not. It would help though if you could use the #FridayWondering hashtag. Thanks!
So here's the first.....
Over on @robjones_tring "Masters or Bust" blog yesterday, @naturalgrump commented raising an interesting bugbear about abbreviations. He observed & I tend to agree that :
"Abbreviations such as JV and BAU take me time to decipher and are painful to place in the context of the post".
Although an expedient form of shorthand, I wonder if abbreviation also takes away meaning and even the power of the original words...
So when we talk about for example H.R. are we taking away the meaning and power of what is actually "Human Resources"?
