Confused? So were we, which is why we put together this Hacks/Hackers Survival Glossary as an explanation of terms that help us understand the information landscape. This is a crowdsourced document that provides a guide to technologies involved in modern content distribution, coordinated by Hacks/Hackers, a grassroots group that brings journalists and technologists together. Don’t know Drupal from Django, API from Ajax, mashup from metadata? This is the list for you. It’s written for intelligent nontechies in (mostly) plain English. Feel free to distribute or contribute.

Glossary » Hacks/Hackers – essential reading for those who, like me, need their hand held a bit through this amazing universe.
