sure, it’s January and this year’s ABA Legal Technology Show (techshow) isn’t until March 13. but even if you’re not a technology geek like me you can still learn a lot from the annual summit of lawyers, vendors, salespeople, IT, and support staff that is techshow. personally, I always find something new there; and this year promises to be a watershed because the show is being chaired by legal blogger Tom Mighell of inter alia. the fact that a seminal blogger like Tom is the chair of the planning board shows where the ABA’s head is these days (and it’s in a good place). so for those intrepid souls who are interested I humbly present a few things we can do now to get more out of this year’s show
- bone up on last year’s show by reading my analysis and on-site reviews before, during, and after the show was over
- join the (un)official link group that I set up using diigo, my favorite social annotation, research, and networking tool
- take a look at this stripped down list of vendors coming to the show or see the original list here at the official website
- contact me to talk about team-blogging the show this year – writing, audio, video … let’s talk about what works
guess that about sums it up for the moment. I’m looking forward to an exciting show this year!
