Misc: Technology industry new terminology initiative

Summary:I've been working in technology for about 20+ years now, so it'll be difficult for me to break old habits w/ terminology, but I'm posting this here in the hopes that I can continue to adjust to new dynamics.
Nothing really technical here, but if you happen to commit/modify code anywhere, here is a good starting point to adjust the terms you use in your code.  Also, a reference point to adjust your spoken vernacular to be inclusive to all those around you.
