If you are reading this column, you already see the added benefit the Internet gives you over just reading your paper copy of the Practical Accountant.

Also like me, you probably also use the technology of the Internet when items of interest appear on subjects of importance to you. For example, I use a free specific service that Yahoo! provides. Based on the key words that I supply, I get e-mails twice daily of news items that relate to accounting. I hyperlink the ones that look interesting. The Government Accountability Office also offers a similar service and I get instant notification when a GAO report comes out.
