Since January 2020 the world has had to become (almost overnight) savvy with a whole boat-load of new abbreviations, so many, that quite often I lose my chain of thought when trying to read and digest new information. Many of these abbreviations and jargon are associated with the Covid pandemic. If you don't know your 'LFTs to your 'PPEs then you will no doubt be-feelin' me! To coin a phrase.
As our world becomes acclimatised to the "Great New Reset," and people are increasingly becoming "easy" with the "vacs-booster" mandates, a whole new language of tech jargon (rolling around my neural network) will be launched into our everyday subconsciousness befitting a dystopian George Orwell novel.
A document has come to my attention from no other than the "US Department Of Homeland Security" showing a list of 11 new topics, "abbreviations" for small business who would want to review topics and ask clarifying technical questions regarding the topic requirements applying for working contracts in the DHS's "new technology" field, ie, A1 (artificial intelligence), RFID chips and tracking systems, all the up-and-coming- new stuff.
The document actually lists 11, (SBIR) Program released topics for the new Small Business innovation Research (SBIR) 22.1 Pre-solicitation, so the small businesses and applicants can be up to "SPEED!"
The document was released last month on November 22, 2021 and gives a rather dystopian view of what is to come in the dark days before us...
