With micro-services, micro-fortnights and more micro-buzz words, I was wondering which micro-buzz words might actually be useful if only to confuse people.

micro-day - about 1/12 of a second.

micro-fortnight - ~1.2 seconds.

micro-year - ~1/2 a minute.

micro-decade - ~5 minutes.

micro-century - 51.3 minutes.

micro-mile - ~1.6 milli-metres.

micro-light second - ~300 meters.

Now you have some more micro-terms you can use to avoid buzz word bingo. ;)

Some more to play with

atto-parsec - about 3 cm.

femto-parsec - about 30 metres.

An IT 5 more minutes - maybe half an hour.
