A whimsical unit of stupidity and cluelessness.
Example Citation:
Punch-card era oldies do not need to go into 404-trances every time they encounter a new term; nor is it necessary for them to try and become jargonauts. Most new economy jargon originates in the realm of technology (like multi-mediocrity, which means poorly created CD-ROMS), and the few that don't are easy enough to be understood by anyone with a low bozon (a unit of stupidity) count.
— "The Swadeshi Confusion," Business Today, September 7, 2000
Earliest Citation:
The language-intimidation factor is very much alive on the Internet. Post a message on a bulletin board there and someone may tag you a "ROM brain." That's someone who spews ideas and opinions but can't seem to accept input from the outside world. Or, you might be said to have a high "bozon" count.
— Julie Schmit, "Cyberspeak," USA Today, September 8, 1995
