Eugene Goldman was quoted by The Wall Street Journal Online on October 15 in regard to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission increasing their technology budget. Mr. Goldman commented on the SEC's move to convert paper documents into searchable electronic files. "They are moving as much as they can away from paper," he commented. Mr. Goldman, who left the SEC enforcement division in 1983, recalls investigators would dig through boxes of documents, tagging relevant items and creating an index of contents. "It took a lot longer back then," he recalled.
