Our LegalTech NY 2010 wrap-up: technology trends, cloud computing, defensible document review, the Baron/Losey Broadway show … and much, much more

Being a native New Yorker now living in Europe, it is always a joy to return to the amazing buzz, the kinetic energy that is New York City. The seeming cacophony of sounds and actions actually belies one overriding positive fact: “you are in New York and we get things done here”. A nice separation from that “other” America with its increasingly dysfunctional governmental mechanisms and increasingly rancorous political culture. And the semi-somnambulant environment of D.C.

So on to LegalTech it was. So different than last year when the sound system seemed to be playing Chopin’s Funeral March and vendors (and attendees) seemed to move in a catatonic state with slumped shoulders. This year Jason R Baron and Ralph Losey brought Darude’s Sandstorm which rocked the crowd (more on their presentation later in this post). And those “nurses” handing out invitations to the NextPoint party. We agree with our colleague Joshua Gilliland (@BowTieLaw on Twitter) that there was more positive buzz, positive energy this year.

We had a chance to catch-up with fellow bloggers/e-discovery analysts such as Fernando Pinguelo and Frank Gonnello, Jr. of E-Lessons Learned, Gabe Acevedo of Gabe’s Guide, Brett Burney of Burney Consultants, Robert Ambrogi of Law Sites (and the recently departed éminence grise of Legal Blog Watch) and uber blogger/media maven Ari Kaplan of Ari Kaplan Advisors (Ari will be the keynote speaker at ABA TECHSHOW next month and we'll have a special program for Posse List members from Ari before then).
