Acronym Finder

August 25, 2009

There are some really cool tools on the internet. Some are new shinies; others have been around for years — like Acronym Finder: http://www.acronymfinder.com

But just because Acronym Finder has been around forever doesn’t mean it’s lost its usefulness. Sure, it may not have the gloss of the new shiny objects, but it does what it does really well and very quickly. One thing I particularly like about it is that it offers similar items for the acronym you’re looking for — just in case you got it wrong, or in case there are multiple definitions for the one you entered.

The image below shows the results for CSIRO — in addition to the definition, the Abbreviation Database Surfer below it is pretty handy! (and yes, I know the CSIRO spells themselves as “Organisation”…)
