The New Abnormal

Hi. I’m Caleb and I’m new around here.
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the non-stop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like)  to wander over here to Accounting Web more often. 
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as the Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession. 
It’s a profession that I’ve been hanging around for over 10 years now and I’ve developed some opinions about it -- some you might like, some you might not like -- but it’ll be fun getting to know each other and having spirited discussions. Why? Because it’s fun. I hope you don’t mind fun.
Of course we’ll still be bringing the most important accounting and tax news to you daily, you’ll hear different voices from our slew of bloggers, and more Excel tips than you can possibly imagine.  
In the meantime, if you have suggestions for what kind of content you want to see on AWEB, your likes, dislikes, etc. etc. you should tell us! You can email me at or tell us in the comments section. 
Good talk. See you out there.
