(XEROX PARC) A small, perhaps struggling outsider; not in the major or even the
minor leagues. For example, "Xerox is not a dirtball company".
Outsiders often observe in the PARC culture an institutional arrogance which
usage of this term exemplifies. The brilliance and scope of PARC's contributions
to computer science have been such that this superior attitude is not much
resented. - ESR
