There is another kind of forensics. Less exciting. It's called forensic accounting. Wow, does that sound fun! Anyway, when you start up high tech companies it generally reaches a point where you have to make a decision about whether you're going to sell your soul to people like Bernie Madoff
or R. Allen Stanford
. You know, the money guys. In exchange for some infinitesimal percentage of a vaporous cloud of investment bank snake oil called financing, or, in technical terms: a high-yield financial instrument.
Going into business with Bernie Madoff? What were you thinking? I expect Bernie will be deeply probed by the S.E.C. and the F.B.I. and then repeatedly by his future cellmates. But if you had gone into business with Bernie, you'd be developing a real interest in forensic accounting at... oh... right about now.
And that's what I call tying the closing scene to the opening scene with a unifying idea.
