Going Concern Editors’ Picks 2014

It's been a fun year for us around here, between the audit partner banging the chief accounting officer at the client and a certain acquisition that took up lots of our time and effort to smoke out. We successfully launched Open Items and wrapped up our awesome year crashing AccountingWEB Live. So all in all, not bad.

As is tradition, we humbly present our Editors' Picks for 2014. Just to remind you that the blonde-haired KPMG refugee who founded this website is still around, Caleb will be throwing his picks in as well, with a few bonus favorites for everyone to bicker over. Let's get to it.
