The Legal Connection Ezine May 2012


The theme this month is “different”. What tech do you think of or use differently…

Me? I think I’m the only one who thinks of Google as I do … getting increasingly freaked out at how much of a monopoly it has on the keystrokes of human existence – and how best to “only” use that information to advertise to its own users.

In fact, Google has spawned an entirely new breed of normal – continuously connected through multiple devices – giving freely of every facet of your existence. All to be indexed, cataloged, keyworded and stored for ever more. And for those keystrokes to only be accessed by Google. For ever more.

K. ‘nuf bout that … ;)

My contribution this month is a partial transcript of my recent conversation with Nerino Petro, Law Practice Management Advisor to the State Bar of Wisconsin. Nerino recently toured the Google campus and shared with me some of his observations - which I share with you on page 2.

Barbara Nelson, as usual, brings her unique perspective to this month’s theme with her contribution Rewire Your Brain (page 3).

Our resident Mac contributor, Joseph Bahgat, brings us tips on how to record a podcast with someone who is sitting next to you or half way round the world.

Bruce Cameron, the Rural Lawyer, reminds us that not everyone is as connected as those of us who are, and that that is not always a bad thing.

Allison Shields gives plenty of examples how attorneys can use technology to set yourself apart from local competition and better serve your clients.

til next month…
