comment What does “binder” mean? Why did it become a political buzzword?
@YoichiOishi the impossibility of a literal interpretation is a good summary of the joke itself - it was obvious what he meant, but he said something painfully easy to intentionally misunderstand.

comment What's a word for somebody you’ve never met?
But it's much better than, say, mentor or teacher. It's used similarly to role model, but with the added sense that they're more than just a personal inspiration, but that they exemplify the highest quality of a certain characteristic. It also carries some of the larger-than-life, admired-from-afar aspect that the OP asked for. If this person were an excellent moral compass or engineer, it would be valid to call them a paragon of morality or a paragon of engineering just as much as a role model!

It wouldn't be. But that doesn't make it sound any less cool.

comment Term for locally installed and fully owned software
It seems to me that this description doesn't adequately address digital distribution, which could either be a service (anything cloud) or a product (e.g. photoshop).

comment Term for locally installed and fully owned software
My last job was in an industry rife with that sort of jargon - this is the right answer. A "product" is something handed to the end-user, whereas as service is something the issuer actively maintains.

comment If the conditions warrant
Without a technical explanation (so it's not really enough for an answer), I'd be fine with hearing "warrant" without "it", but in reading it, there's the feeling of ending too abruptly.
