In a meeting, when the discussion about a topic comes to an end and there is some action to be taken, someone will often ask, “Who has the conn?” If you are like me you understand what it means (who is in charge of taking action after the meeting), but you wonder about the etymology of the word. Is it an abbreviation? An acronym? Slang? Or maybe it really is a word on its own? Well, I have an answer for you.
