Another one for the CIO

Virginia Postrel has an interesting take on Sarbanes-Oxley and all the trouble it creates for the IT department. I know from pretty reliable sources that SarBox is high on any Fortune 500 CIO’s agenda, because the added need for tracking and documentation creates no end of headaches throughout most systems. I was especially struck by the observation that what would be considered small companies in the US ($68m) consider going private again, just to avoid the nitpicking.
