In this paper we investigate the differences between practitioner and academic interests in emerging technologies. We compare and contrast the results of a faculty survey to the AICPA's Top Technology list. It appears that academics and practitioners have significantly different interests concerning emerging technologies. Furthermore, technology interests for both groups change over time. We then discuss the problems that arise from the differing points of view and suggest some possible solutions.
