Going, going, gone ... is paper going away for good? We all know the revolution the paperless office has made at many accounting firms, but what about the way we get news? Is the print publication becoming obsolete?

I, for one, don't think so - and not just because I work at one. That said, I realize how important being digital and technically savvy is. That's why I'm going to ask you this - how do you prefer your news? Via an e-mail roundup every morning on your handheld? Or do you prefer nuggets of news blasted at you during the day as it happens? And how much opinion are you looking for, in comparison to hard facts? C'mon, tell me.

I'm also wondering - how much do social media sites like Twitter and Facebook help in getting you the information you need to stay on top of your ever-changing profession? Please write me and tell me your thoughts - I'm all ears.

On another note, we've been pleased with the new contributors writing on the site. You'll probably recognize Jody Padar, a CPA and adjunct professor at Oakton Community College who wrote about what's not working in networking. Sarah Johnson and Art Kuesel, two consultants from PDI Global, teamed up to offer their expertise on the marketing and communication world. We also welcomed sophomore accounting major Jess Lambi, who wrote about how she learned about accounting through developing a business plan in one of her classes.

Finally, I've made an attempt to "like" every single state society that has a Facebook page. If I've missed you, please let me know. Or if you're part of a state society and have ideas on possible collaborations with Accounting Tomorrow, especially if you have a young CPA group or network - please don't hesitate to be in touch!

As always, you can contact me at tomorrow@sourcemedia.com.
