The buzz words

The Washington Business Journal is running one of my favorite online polls:

If you could get your colleagues to stop using "win-win" or some other catch phrase from the business world, what would it be?

The options:
* Win-win
* Value-added
* Synergy
* Mission critical
* Think outside the box
* Other

Kudos to them for... er, thinking outside the box to add value to their mission critical Web site... or something like that.

The SF Business Journal, a sister publication to the DC Business Journal, asks about what should be California's official state wine following a state legislator's proposal.

Here is their question:

State Sen. Carole Migden is asking the California Legislature to designate Zinfandel as California's official state wine. "It's about time that we give it the recognition it deserves," she said in a Feb. 9 news release. Others like the idea, but say zin isn't the way to go. And some say a California native like steam beer would be better.

There you go!
