What Rich Karlgaard said: (From a post on the Forbes’ magazine publisher’s blog today): “At Forbes we like to say that when a story appears on the cover of Time of Newsweek, it is “top-ticked.” Which means, if Time or Newsweek declares a new trend, the trend has peaked. If Time or Newsweek loves a hot stock, sell.”
Observation: Thank goodness. With “top-tick,” I now have a new term I can use for way-past tock-ticked “jumping-the-shark.” Let me try it in a sentence: “Forbes’ recent top-tick cover story on attack blogs is sure hard to find on their website these days.”
Observation II: Despite that snide crack, I agree (as usual) with Rich.
