Too hackneyed for what?
It's OK for cheap ad copy, but meaningless for technical work
and kind of passi for cool ads.

Call for Neologism:

The term "state of the art" has been used for some time to refer to
the highest level of development. In your opinion, is it hackneyed?
I posed the question once to an STC PIC a while ago and one member
suggested: "Bleeding edge." This may be too bloody for many. I
considered " the fore-running cusp" for a softer sound, but neither
terms seem adequate to me. They just don't have the ring of an
engineering feat. I've also run across "state of the edge," but
a mere substitution of one word for another. Any suggestions
