History

Dating back to early 1993, Tom Davis's Buzzword Bingo was, as far I know, the first ever implementation of buzzword bingo. In 1993, I created a publically accessible web version of Tom's C program, and it spread across the internet like wildfire. In 1994, Scott Adams did a Dilbert strip involving buzzword bingo, and in 1998, Tom and I were even quoted slandering management on the front page of the Wall Street Journal!

Now there are quite a few buzzword bingo sites.

In 2008, I updated this site using bleeding-edge Web 2.0 technologies. Now take it and run with it...the ball's in your court!
