London Calling

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:

Coverage of 2014 ABA Techshow

In March, I covered ABA Techshow for the ABA Journal. Here are the stories that came out of it:

Major Accomplishment For Your’s Truly

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).

Off to the Windy City

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.
