@rrhoover Yep, simple and straightforward.
Genius. Really. Especially when you're talking to someone and they don't have the slightest clue what you're talking about. I use analogies all the time to explain tech. Sideways makes sure I use don't use the wrong analogy so I don't confuse things further.

It's a Google's Jigsaw incubator and WaPo initiative, with user contribution in place. Pretty neat. The backstory here

Checked it yesterday. Idea is good. However, some analogies are strange :)

Nice product. Thanks! It great service even for self education. If you can explain complicated term in simple words that's the only evidence you truly understand that term. Also it was Richard Feynman's main approach to education/understanding, to explain complex situation in simple analogies :)
