Words that I've decided need to be used better: startup

I've decided some words are used far too frequently/loosely and have resolved to use them better in daily life. :)

Startup: thrown around far too often because saying one works at a start-up sounds sexier than saying one works at a small company. So new rule: if you work at place that has been around for more than two years and/or has released the second version of their product, the place is no longer "starting up". You work at a small company, not a start-up and you should be fine with saying it.
