I am what you might call a 10K junkie. I spend hours reading through SEC filings of small tech companies. I don't shy away from the benumbing financial numbers, either. I believe that a company might release press releases, a company might put together a marketing act to beat the rappers and the president-incumbents, but truth with a capital T is always to be found in the filings. This is one of the greatest of American institutions - this transparency - and my small investments in the US market stem from my reading these filings and crunching the numbers. And, I am also a budding engineer interested in the business of technology; A technocrat in the making.
