5 Reasons You Should Go To ABA Tech Show Next Year
The ABA’s annual TechShow conference is awesome and you should go.
ABA TechShow Has a Diversity Problem
The 64 presenters at this year’s ABA TechShow were overwhelmingly white and male. I count 15 women (23%) and just 2 people of color (3% — although it is difficult to tell who might consider themselves a person of color just from a photograph).

Come Hang Out with Us Next Friday at 2 pm Central
At TechShow, I had a lot of great conversations with other geeks. It’s fun to share ideas, talk about tech and see what works (and what doesn’t) for lawyers in their practices.

So all the speakers talked about what will disrupt law practice, whether it’s virtual offices or LegalZoom or gamification or Big Data. […]
10 One-Sentence Ideas from LexThink.1 #ABATechShow
Each six-minute LexThink.1 presentation (similar to Pecha Kucha) is just long enough to get out a single idea — if the presenter is any good. The idea is to be entertaining and clever, not comprehensive. Actually, LexThink.1 may be entertaining for the audience, but since most of the presenters are seasoned speakers, it’s more like […]
Hands on With MyCase’s New iPhone App
I take the new MyCase iPhone app for a spin.
60 Websites in 60 Minutes from ABA TechShow
The popularity of “N things in N minutes” seminars is a little baffling to me, especially since you can apparently get CLE credit for some of these shallowest of all seminars. But the lists themselves can be interesting. This list of 60 websites from ABA TechShow contains everything from useful tools for lawyers to effective […]
Desktop & Portable Document Scanners Multiply at #ABATechShow

Practice Management Software Explosion at #ABATechShow
The explosion of practice management software options and features at ABA TechShow is kind of amazing.
