Are CPAs Innovative Technologists?

A recent AICPA survey reflects that 40% of CPAs consider themselves a technology resource for their clients. I tend to agree with the linked Accounting Today article that wonders what planet they are from. Even though I am presently sitting in a room of around 400 CPAs attending a Technology Conference it doesn't appear that 40% of these CPAs are personally technology savvy. Most do seem to have some type of smartphone and have enough interest to both pay the fee and spend the time to learn some things. However many of their clients are ahead of them in implementing useful technologies. To the extent that my anecdotal observations are correct, it casts dispersion upon the validity of survey results.
