    The world of technology is bedevilled with awful buzzwords but Dutch developer Pixel Ambacht has a solution – Sans Bullshit Sans, a font that automatically shows the worst tech terms for the bullshit they are, almost literally.

    Build on the open-source Droid Sans font, Sans Bullshit Sans uses support for ligatures to cover the words on its banned list with “bullshit” signs written in the most feared typeface of all, Comic Sans.

    You can get a live demo of the font at the Sans Bullshit Sans site, download it here and read an extensive breakdown of  how it was created. If there are terms you want translated that aren’t already on the list, you can submit them via GitHub.
