At the privacy symposium I went to, I heard a word I had never heard before. It goes on my list of words I absolutely detest for aesthetic reasons, along with polyamory and gifted (as a verb). That word is ....
"Monetize." As in "You found a way to monetize your information."*
I guess it's not enough any more to say things like "Did you find a way to turn a profit on this?" I am all for using fewer words, but this one is simply ridiculous.
