Hey @BigBurly13

Your’s was a more modest ask than I thought. Maybe compile what’s been provided thus far and draw attention to what’s still missing?

Is it cool that some folks keyed off ‘jargon’ and used the thread more expansively?

Cheers, -peep

Ay, there’s the rub.

I know @BigBurly13 's looking to demystify things by spelling out abbreviations and acronyms and defining jargon terms. Knowing the terms and using them consistently is a great help when speaking to people with advanced knowledge and deep experience.

But that’s just the beginning. It’s a tough slog to expertise, constantly changing and expanding.

Two years exposure with middling engagement and that’s my ‘advanced beginner’ list. It sort of coheres. It gets me by.

But that’s it.

Rise up this mornin’
Smile with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou”
