Fellow blogger Brian Tankersley (CPA Firm Technology Blog--a 2005 "Twelve Blogs of Christmas" awardee--and a member of the Accounting WEB Blogger Crew) gave a very good presentation at the Nashville chapter of the Tennessee Society of CPAs February meeting Tuesday night. Brian, a continuing education speaker for K2 Enterprises, talked about developments in the technology area. Among items discussed were: electronic readers such as the Amazon Kimble (basically the visual equivalent of an audio book), LinkedIN (a social network for working professionals), Twitter resumes (a micro-resume, Twitter is in effect a 21st century telegraph message) and Sales Circular.com--a good place to find bargains on electronics. He had a shorter talk during dinner about "Toys and Gadgets," such as mini-"notebooks" (portable computers)
which women could coordinate with their outfits and video glasses which could be used to watch movies during an airline flight.
This is my seocnd opportunity to meet a fellow blogger (Joe Kristan of Roth CPA Updates was my first last summer) and I thoroughly enjoyed both opportunities. Hopefully, I will get to see more accounting bloggers in the future.
