"What Language is That?"cc licensed flickr photo shared by cogdogblog

I went to the local Chili Cook Off contest today wearing my Open Education 2009 conference t-shirt with this logo.

One local guy dishing out his chili looked at it and asked me, "What language is that written in?"

I was stunned a moment, trying to sort out how serious a question this was. The best I could manage was, "That’s New English".

Maybe "Techlish" would have been better.

In the scale of world populations, us technical geeks are a really really small pool, eh?
