People who think they know everything - rather
approximately. But apparently there's another kind.
(The first, they probably already have.)

The term is currently being used to describe analysts of
large data sets, particularly for 'Business Intelligence',
a subset of 'Big Data'.

Its usage here is correct.

Ontology (introduced in 1606) is the philosophical study of the nature
of being, becoming, existence, or reality, as well as the basic
categories of being and their relations. Traditionally listed as a
part of the major branch of philosophy known as metaphysics, ontology
often deals with questions concerning what entities exist or may be said
to exist and how such entities may be grouped, related within a
hierarchy, and subdivided according to similarities and differences. A
very simple definition of ontology is that it is the examination of what
is meant by "being".

[/quote] - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontology

So, analyzing large data sets would fall under "...how such entities
may be grouped, related within a hierarchy, and subdivided according
to similarities and differences..." I suppose, but that's just a sliver
of what ontology traditionally covers.

So, "metaphysics" to deal with "metadata?"

people in the way I describe:

I remember "skiffy" and "steff" as in "stf" for scientifiction,
which I ran across in the Ted White era of AMAZING STORIES.

Who was it called "Sci-Fi" a "barbarous neologism?" I
want to say Ellison.
It appears to be what people think English sexologist
Havelock Ellis (1859-1939) said of the word "homosexual".
Though <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Havelock_Ellis>
quotes him calling it "barbarously hybrid" in 1897.
Being part Latin and part Greek was the objection.
Or perhaps he'd patented his own term "invert" and
wanted to collect royalties.

I gather that in Tom Stoppard's play _The Invention
of Love_, the real poet A. E. Housman (1859-1936)
is either doing it (around 1880 or later) or thinking
about it (while crossing the River Styx after death)
and makes the same complaint... oh, here's a quote
where he calls it "barbarity". An in-joke, I suspect.
<http://www.hjkeen.net/halqn/stopprd3.htm>

C. P. Scott, 1846-1932 if I've got the right one,
said it about television (so named in 1900 but not
practical till a lot later). I think he expected
people to connect this to Havelock Ellis's comment,
though Wikipedia has a long "Hybrid word" list,
and "sociology" seems to have been employed before
"homosexual". I think that Ellis in 1897 also may
be the origin of "barbarous neologism" - surprising
at least some of its users, perhaps not Ellison -
but it would account for fingering Ellison on his.

I may be wrong; there were other barbarous neologisms
in the 19th century but I don't know if they were called
that. For instance, a verb for what a burglar does
was wanted then, and both "burglarize" and "burgle"
were invented, perhaps unconsciously in the latter case.
"Commit burglary" sounds like what was done, or not
done, by A. E. Housman.

In July 1998 Harlan Ellison was an online guest at Parcon, a SF
convention in Chotebor in the Czech Republic. The following are his
responses to the questions posed on-line by the Czech fans:

[snip]

First of all, the hideous neologism "sci-fi"--which sounds like
crickets fucking--is at the core of this seeming malaise.
What is called "sci-fi" is _not_, repeat NOT, science fiction. It is
special effects movie/television produced by and for imbeciles. Giant
lizards, moronic space battles with spaceships acting as if they were
Spads and Fokkers dogfighting in atmosphere, recycled fairy tales, and
illiterate appeals to paranoia. They bear as much relation to science
fiction of quality (whether film or tv or books or magazines) as Dachau
did to a health spa.

[/quote] - http://harlanellison.com/text/parcon.txt

I don't think I first encountered this here.

I did hear Alistair Cooke talking about an old classics
master of his at school who thought "television" a
linguistic travesty, and insisted on calling a movie
palace a "kinima," as opposed to a "sin-uh-ma."
That would have been on a "Masterpiece Theatre" intro,
or perhaps in the PBS "Story of English" series.

Google Ngram suggests that 'sci-fi' started to trend upward in 1963, but the
earliest usage I've found is in Time Magazine in 1964, which mentions 'sci-fi
tykes' in 'Village of the Damned'.
