Tweet, Tweeps, What?

It seems that Social Media is coming in all shapes and sizes these days. Everyone remembers MySpace for it's meteoric rise and sudden crash. Facebook has now entered into the market as the major place for finding friends, colleagues, coworkers and shockingly...your parents and grandparents. Everything we do and say can now be found in the digital world. We leave behind a digital footprint for everyone to follow. The big question becomes, how do we control our brand in the age of everything digital?

An intriguing way for accountants and accounting professionals to do this is through Twitter. A lot of people have had a difficult time making sense of micro-blogging. Essentially it seems like a waste of time...who would read what you have to say? Who even cares? The truth is in the details. There's a wealth of information out there, but how do you find it? Twitter essentially acts as a filter for data. You choose who you want to follow and receive information from.

Riding on the Cloud

I wanted to share some thoughts with everyone today on how Cloud Computing is changing the way we do business.

Cloud Computing - - for a basic explanation.

The very idea of Cloud Computing is changing the way we do business. Information has suddenly become a whole lot more accessible. A traveler in an internet cafe in Barcelona can sign on to work through or and take a look at where his financials are and if his accountant has processed his last expense report. There's no need to pick up the phone, only find a computer with an internet connection. The ability of the world to remotely connect is being tested everyday. Boundaries are literally being ripped down. We are not living in the same brick and mortar businesses of the 19th Century. Want to download software from Microsoft in Redmond, Washington? Just click the button in Perth, Australia and you have exactly what you need. Why can't we do the same thing with all of our companies financial data? The truth is we can. The way we do business in the 21st century is constantly being tested.
