After sending a nice, polite note of introduction to Dennis Howlett over at AccMan, I got the surprise of my life when this morning there was a full blown post, citing my most recent article about KPMG and their leaky lawyers.
It’s always a treat to find those others with an interest and aptitude for the business that is the professional services business, especially as the model relates to the audit firms. It’s even better when he’s a tech guy. I miss my days at BearingPoint. I always say I know more than the average accountant about technology. It’s served me well in starting this blog writing adventure.
While looking through his site and learning more about his interests, I saw this article:
Why your site must be RSS enabled in 2006
28 Dec, 2005
“During 2006, Really Simple Syndication (RSS) will become the topic du jour on many websites. There is a simple reason for this. Microsoft is getting into this game in a big way. This is a very big deal because at present RSS enabled sites (of which this but one), represent a tiny fraction of all websites (less than 10%) on the planet. But I think that’s set to explode.”
Dennis, you couldn’t have been more right. And that just goes to show I still have a lot to learn. I’d better get my little RSS logo asap!
Then I went over to the latest post – Dennis stays up late over there in France – and saw this one:
“I’ve been waiting with baited breath for the considered analysis of my colleagues on the Enterprise 2.0 conference. But what do I find? A cat fight over the best band of the 70s. Duh? Don’t they know it was Led Zeppelin?
According to the otherwise extremely intelligent Mark Crofton:
There’s no accounting for taste. At dinner last night there was a very heated debate about best band of the 70’s. In one corner was Andrew McAfee making a spirited case for Led Zeppelin; in the other was Jason Wood arguing (seriously) for Earth, Wind and Fire?!?!? Don’t they know it’s Lynard Skynard?”
I’m with you, Dennis. My all time favorite song – this one.
