A Reader’s Thumbs-Up

BY MICHAEL KINAHAN

I would just like to express my appreciation for the Technology Workshop series and Technology Q&A articles that appear in the JofA . Since my primary role is that of analyst, I spend a great deal of time working with Excel and other Microsoft Office applications. Therefore, I find these sections of the magazine interesting, informative and quite relevant to everyday life.

I hope you continue with these quality articles.
