The Washington Post & Jigsaw
Jigsaw and The Washington Post launched Sideways Dictionary, a platform for people to share witty analogies to explain technology concepts. Technical jargon makes it harder to understand the tools and technologies shaping our daily lives. And unfortunately there’s plenty about technology that can be confusing. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a simpler way to understand complex technology?
To make Sideways Dictionary even more useful we created a Chrome extension. A tool that automatically highlights difficult to understand tech words. And provides you as an easy way to, when reading the news, or just browsing the web. To get an analogy that helps you highlight the specific word on the page.
This way non tech-savvy users have an easy way to, on every page on the internet, to get to understand tech terms.
Because if we understand technology better, we can all make better use of it.
