Collusion / Col·lu·sion

Word Of The Day: Collusion


I was watching Video of the month on Ted.com and Gary Kovac’s talk on internet trackers did cause me some panic. He suggests that we are being watched/tracked by exponentially increasing sites whenever we surf the web.

He promotes a program or app called Collusion. I first thought I heard Collision, which means the impact of separate bodies of matter crashing into each other whilst going on separate trajectories.

Collusion however was a word I have not heard of or read before. So here’s what I’ve found :

col·lu·sion

[kuh-loo-zhuhn]  Show IPA

noun

1.a secret agreement, especially for fraudulent or treacherous purposes; conspiracy: Some of his employees were acting incollusion to rob him.
2.Law . a secret understanding between two or more personsto gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries though in agreement:collusion of husband and wife to obtain a divorce.

WikipediaCollusion is an agreement between two or more persons, sometimes illegal and therefore secretive, to limit open competition by deceiving, misleading, or defrauding others of their legal rights, or to obtain an objective forbidden by law typically by defrauding or gaining an unfair advantage

Collusion as a product/add-on that is released by Mozilla (Firefox) , The product supposedly tracks the Trackers themselves by showing you particle-like visuals of each site’s trackers. Whether you would find it useful or not, it does feel a little uncomfortable to have your stalkers so…explicit.

The Definition of Eloquence

el·o·quence/ˈeləkwəns/

Noun:
  1. Fluent or persuasive speaking or writing.
  2. The art or manner of such speech or writing.
Synonyms: expression, rhetoric, articulation, diction, expressiveness, oration

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eloquence

Eloquence (from Latin eloquentia) is fluent, forcible, elegant or persuasive speaking. It is primarily the power of expressing strong emotions in striking and appropriate language, thereby producing conviction or persuasion. The term is also used for writing in a fluent style.

The concept of eloquence dates to the ancient Greeks, Calliope,(one of the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne) being the Muse of epic poetry and eloquence.

Too bad Callie Torres from Grey’s Anatomy, whom is also named Calliope, isn’t as eloquent as her namesake.

Image

I personally think Eloquence is about expressing complex emotions and conveying them so well that the whole audience knows exactly what you meant to the point of resonance.
