Jargon Watch, Media Edition

In her Fishbowl NY exit interview, Rachel Sklar says that she’s “excited to do stuff in other verticals”. Earlier today, a friend of mine in the media unselfconciously used the words “surface” and “obsolete” as verbs in rapid succession. Both of these people are editorial-side employees. Or would have been considered such, anyway, before the distinction between editorial- and business-side started blurring so much.

    I just heard “verticals” used in much the same sense today, in an interview with a software developer who was trying to explain how he planned to make money from a product he is currently giving away.
