Type "entrepreneurship" ten times, quickly.

A while back I had occasion to type the words "entrepreneur" and the even-longer "entrepreneurship" quite a bit. Too much, in fact, so I started abbreviating them "e10r" and "e14p", respectively. This idea I stole from the internationalization/localization (i18n/l10n) crowd; ask a search engine for more on those.

So I offer these to the world without reservation, in the hope that we can all type a bit less. You needn't cite this page, but in the early stages it wouldn't hurt.

Don't get it? Count the letters between the "i" and the "n" in "internationalization". It's "i", then 18 letters, then "n". Same thing.
