Yeah, I referenced Disney’s “Dog With a Blog” in my latest “Law Scribbler” column about how law firms are going to blog more in the coming year. It all makes sense – I think.
William Hubbard speaks about the importance of technology in expanding access to justice.
Embracing nontraditional ways to bill and budget can be profitable.
Can small firms thrive in a tough competitive environment?
Is online dispute resolution the wave of the future?
EFF’s Cindy Cohn calls for lawyer support in fight over mass surveillance.
Cybersecurity experts offer stern warnings, tips for security in mass-surveillance era.
State bar was the key to open profession to tech and collaboration.
’60 in 60′ highlights cybersecurity, workplace productivity and social media.
And thanks to Phil Brown for the great photo and Tweet. Love his photos!
Now she’s got bad blood! And it’s not with Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj…
Another ABA Annual Meeting is in the books. I only covered a few events this year (a far cry from last year). Here are the stories that came out of my coverage:
How can tensions between minorities and police be addressed? Reforms proposed.
Lawyers debate campaign financing, voter restrictions and other election issues.
Disruptive innovators try to convince skeptical attorneys of the need to collaborate.
What are the business costs of ignoring racial and gender diversity?
Meanwhile, the quote from the Tweet below caused quite a commotion.
From audience: “You talk about the law like it’s a business. It’s not. It’s a profession.” I guess that sums up the divide nicely #ABAAnnual

I recently went to London to cover the 800th anniversary celebration of the sealing (no, King John never signed it- but I bet he still had that sourpuss expression on his face) of the Magna Carta for the ABA Journal. I may have also made a detour to Manchester to see Old Trafford (I also had the chance to see Take That in concert, but my wife never would have forgiven me for going without her). Anyway, here are the stories that came out of it:

Last week, I covered Avvo’s Lawyernomics conference held at the Wynn Las Vegas. Here are the stories that came out of it:

Last week, I covered the ABA’s National Summit on Innovation in Legal Services, held at Stanford University. Here are the stories that came out of it:
I recently had the privilege of covering part of the ABA’s Annual Meeting, which took place in Boston. Here were the stories that came out of it:
I love it when I get to link back to something I wrote. For this story, I referred back to a 2012 story I did about an attack ad against Senate candidate Ted Cruz accusing him of working for a liberal law firm. That’s the last time anyone associated Cruz with anything liberal.
In March, I covered ABA Techshow for the ABA Journal. Here are the stories that came out of it:
I liked the lede on this one. My wife came up with the blog post headline. I was trying to think of something other than a variation of “Backstreet’s back… in court” that several sites used (another one I saw was “Quit Playing Games With Our Legal Fees.” Anyway, here’s the story from ABA Journal.
One of my best social media moments. My Tweet about #RejectedGrammyCategories made the Daily Rehash list. I’m there with the likes of John Fugelsang and Denny’s.
This marks the second time one of my Tweets made a Top Ten list. The previous time was in 2012 when Mashable put my Tweet about the “mystery speaker” at the GOP National Convention on its list of “Ten Hilarious Guesses About the GOP Mystery Speaker.”
On the flip side, this could mean that I only have a funny Tweet once every two years. Oh well…
And, of course, this doesn’t include the time I made fun of Right Said Fred in a Tweet, and the band responded to me (or, at least the band’s social media manager did).
After nine years in New York (including the last three-and-a-half years with ALM Media), I will no longer be a resident of the Big Apple. As of December 9, I’ll be based in Chicago as a legal affairs writer with the ABA Journal. I’m also excited to be embarking on this new adventure with my lovely wife.
In the meantime, I’d like to thank everyone at Law Technology News and American Lawyer Magazine for three-and-a-half wonderful years.
