Since I wasn't among that elite group, however, I went to STANDS4.com — a great source for acronyms and abbreviations — to find out. There are several categories here from which to choose, including computers, Internet, business and medical. Or, you can browse alphabetically.

Mac's Picks of the Week
"The widespread use of acronyms generally is a relatively modern phenomenon, according to Yigal Ben Efraim, founder and CEO of Abbreviations.com, a web site about abbreviations. It began in the 19th century thanks to growing literacy rates, but usage skyrocketed as the 20th century progressed. "The rise in literacy, media, science and technology brought an enormous amount of new terms and definitions, which naturally required a shorthand form to ease their daily usage," says Ben Efraim."
