MUT = module under test. Fun to write, read, and say, and generic enough to describe any level of test, while also specific enough to connotate this is local code under test. Also, a "mutt" is a canine breed of many different types, which I think fits well with "module under test" as well.

A defect is ordering a Big Mac with Cheese and receiving a Big Mac without any cheese. A critique is saying "boy this sandwich could really be improved with some barbecue sauce." This may seem obvious, but the latter is not a defect, it's a new requirement.

Presentations follow a general format of 1) give presentation, and 2) question and answer. If the same presentation is presented multiple times to different audiences, then the Q&A tends to differ, out of which a "Frequently Asked Questions" list can be compiled. I wonder if there's a way to formalize this approach with existing presentation software (Powerpoint would be nice, but it would be easier to build something off of OS Markdown based presentation tools).
