I live in software where buzzwords abound and I can barely stand them.

But – “Bleeding Edge” – this one gets me all the time.

What we want to write code that is bleeding off the edge of a knife?

Did someone die for our software to compile?

Are we attacking Orcs at dawn?

When I ship this code do I make a blood sacrifice to the elders of my keyboard?

Oh wait, is this a Klingon thing?

It must be, because all I can think of when I hear Bleeding Edge are these Ten Coding Commandments.
