People, trends, and issues that most influence technology today. What Big Business is being told in The Economist's CFO Magazine. No Metafilter ? Thankfully, blogs not mentioned.

Funny that Portals and Web Services, two of the hottest concepts of the Internet craze, only make it to #15 and #20, respectively.

It's really a pretty pointless list. It's meant for the CFO -- the head accountant -- not the people on the cutting edge, so of course it's going to be mostly old news and lame concepts.

PS Thought it relevant because list targeted (for better or worse) at those who recommend/make technology $$ spending decisions.

"Indeed, the only way to fully to grasp the potentiality of combining computers with modern communications, and to judge what part they will play in daily life and in the work of the community, is to think of a system incorporating the computing, publishing, newspaper, broadcasting, library, telephone and postal services of the country, together with large slices of teaching, of government, of industrial and commercial operations, and of many professional activities....If anyone asks where the capital will come from to create such a system, the answer is that it is money that the competent undertakings would be spending anyway for their own computing and communications facilities, but now channeled into a common enterprise."
