One of these days I'd like to pick up the paper and read an article about how there was a crisis averted due to superior long-range planning by a government agency. In the meantime, we get the GAO describing the inability of various government agencies to come to a consensus on who should be in charge of delivering expertise in anti-terrorist-financing to countries that need our help.

Innovative CIOs: Moving On Up
News  |  11/8/2005
Back in business school, on my first day of the required Marketing class, the professor put a slide up on the board that said something to the effect of: "More of today's CEOs have risen to the top through the marketing function than from any other area of business." Of course, hyping one's own field of interest is something you'd certanly expect a marketing professor to do. Nevertheless, the slide made an impression. Was there something about Marketing, compared to Finance, Operations or anyth
Unfrozen Caveman Developer

Before becoming a chronicler of the banking industry, I worked as a database developer. I mostly worked with an obscure hierarchical database tool called Omnis, which had the claim to fame of being the first cross-platform (Mac/PC) database for the first GUI version of Windows. Subsequently, I left the programming game to get an MBA and then, to make a long story short, here I am. Now that I'm also managing the Web sites for CMP Media's financial industry publications, I've found it necessary

Technology pundits have been debating about whether Apple Computer's video iPod, and by extension, video cell phones and other video-enabled mobile devices, will take off. I wouldn't bet against it, but not because I think that we'll watch repurposed television programs on these devices.
