Time Traveling in the Practice of Law


I decided something the other day. You know the saying, how time seems to go faster every year. Everyone says it, but no one believes it can happen. You just get busier, so it feels that way.

I decided I don’t believe that anymore. I think time really is moving faster than it used to, we just won’t believe it because it would upset our sense of order in a big way.

Now, I could go off on a whole philosophical diatribe about the implications of such an idea, but that’s not why I brought it up. It came to mind because, when it comes to the radical changes that are evolving in our profession, the engine’s picking up steam real fast. We’re experiencing the predictions unfold into reality more quickly every day. Isn’t that the definition of time going faster?

The other reason it came to mind is that I’ve wanted to blog about the Thomson Reuters’ Pangea3 purchase for almost a week now, and here I am, Wednesday @ 2:26 pm, hoping to get this out today. So I’m pleading the time-is-going-faster defense, and decided to do something different.

I have aggregated a series of blog post links that tell a kind of story. It’s the story of the LPO marketplace, the international business environment from which Thomson Reuter’s purchase evolved, and why it’s such a big deal. In these posts, you will find facts, opinions and insights into what is happening RIGHT NOW, how it affects you and some predictions for what’s to come.
