The other day while watching the Silicon Valley TV show, my friend Matt thought that it would be hilarious and educational to create a website like urban dictionary for all the lingos from the show. So we created one. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to add some words on the website and let us know what you think!

@choi_kl haha love this! Super surprised it hasn't been done sooner. A really fun idea, nice work!
Angad Singh — Cofounder at Lemonade.io
@choi_kl We should do a collaboration with this and @fundergame. https://appsto.re/us/nG1S-.i

@choi_kl Haha. So funny :-) Thanks for sharing. I'm not sure it's just restricted to the show! Is it strictly limited to the show, or is it to share general valley lingo?

@prattarazzi Glad you like it! It initially started out as something to aggregate all the words from the show but decided to add the words from outside the show as well. :)

This is awesome, will be very useful for the rest of the world (non-Product Hunters/tech people). Awesome work my friend!

@abityastunggal Thanks! It's going to be interesting to see if this will catch on outside of tech

Hilarious! We're using similar terms here in Europe as well ;)

This is fantastic. Learned a bunch of new ones that I'm sure I'll hear in pitches shortly.

Violeta Nedkova — Marketing Coach Extraordinaire
Love it. Does Peter Thiel really give people money to drop out of college?! :D
M
Kilim Choi — Engineer and Entrepreneur
@v4violetta I believe he does. He gives $100,000 to those under the age of 20 to drop out and focus on research, startups, or whatever really. More information here, http://www.thielfellowship.org/a...
Violeta Nedkova — Marketing Coach Extraordinaire
@choi_kl Amazing. :O

Matthew Hui — Founder @ Backpak.io
@v4violetta Some of the definitions seem like complete jokes but there is a lot of truth behind most of them
Violeta Nedkova — Marketing Coach Extraordinaire
@matthui Oh I believe you. You know what they say about jokes being 50% truth. Well, sometimes the percentage varies.

Matthew Hui — Founder @ Backpak.io
@v4violetta Wouldn't it be cool if there was a slider for percent serious and you slide it to change what content you see
