Thank Goodness It’s Friday Open Items!

Before I let you loose in this week's open items thread, I have a brief housekeeping item I want to get out of the way that doesn't warrant its own post if that's cool. As you all know, today marks our first full week together since I took the wheel of this ratchet ship (#shoutouttoglory #beyonceisnteventhatgoodyouknowthatright #ratchetismynewfavoriteword). I'll let you in on a little secret: my first Executive Order after taking over was to fire Colin but then TPTB informed me that even though he isn't running the show over here any longer, he's still my boss. Darn, I tried. Anyway, even though some of you think I'm a whipcracking dictator (or maybe you fantastize that I am), I swear your opinions and feelings matter to me. I'm hoping you all are having as much fun as I am but if you need to vent, have story ideas or just need to talk, my figurative door is always open. Please don't hesitate to check in. I MEAN IT.

NOW, back to the issue at hand. Welcome to your Friday Open Items thread for the week of November 18 – November 22. While you guys have been busy protecting capital markets, Colin and I have been in Denver with the AWeb folks too trying to brainstorm how to make this the most kick-ass degenerate accounting website ever in history. Things are going great, despite Colin's overuse of banned words and phrases like "circle back" and "think outside the box." So this is for him:

I'm going to get back to sneering at him for using buzzwords over here, I trust you kids can take it from here. Have fun and be nice!
