Mnemonic Devices

~300 answered questions
Mnemonic devices are sequential word tricks to help a person remember something. An example of this would be saying "Every Good Boy Does Fine" to remember the E, G, B, D, F of the treble scale when reading music.
There aren't specific mnemonic devices for technology. Maybe for some specific parts of it, but not for the entire world of information that is technology. Try a more specific question. See the related links for a list of mnemonics, in case they have some information that would help you.
