Today the PCAOB is hosting a roundtable discussion on the form of the auditor opinion.  32 experts and a full eight hour day.  I will not be live blogging it.


The use of social media is crucial to any professional.  It is important as a source of news.  It is an important form and style of communication.  It is also a means of branding for those with something to say.  If you don’t have something to say, shame on you.  See yesterday’s post for examples some whose use social media turned them into thought leaders.


Update to the SEC document destruction story.  Last week, Broc Romanek (theCorporateCousel.net) reported that the SEC is suspending its policy of shredding MUIs (matters under investigation).  Yesterday, Jessica Holzer of the Wall Street Journal reports, “SEC’s Khuzami: Current Probes Not Hurt by Records Destruction.” I’ve written before that this is a non-issue.


Mark Schaefer is a marketing professor who has a terrific blog on social media marketing.  I subscribe to {grow}, and highly recommend you do so also.  I know of no blogger who writes as much daily and valuable content as does he.  Today’s guest post, “The Death of Internet Marketing and the Rise of Social SEO,” touches on my recurring theme–social media use is more than a marketing ploy or a mindset, it is a transformative and transcendent experience.


If you hope someday to become a blogger, you should read taxgirl by Kelly Phillips Erb, a Philadelphia lawyer.  I would emulate her if I could, but I don’t think accountingboy would have the same ring.  Her post today on the tax treatment of employer provided cell phones is an enjoyable read.  Are there any employers out there who want to provide me with a smart phone?

Much discussion has assumed that valuable evidence is being destroyed when the SEC discards MUI (matters under investigation).  This is not necessarily so, as Broc Romanek explains in “A Little Debunking of the SEC’s Records Destruction: What is a MUI?
