Legal Technology Blog Returns

After a roughly nine month hiatus, the  Legal Technology Blog has returned, alive and well.

But with 2010 here, it’s time for the blogs to return. This blog will continue to comment upon new trends in legal technology, tips to be a more efficient attorney (or support person) and other related topics. Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience.

Yet, somehow, technology keeps us connected, too. Today I (finally) emailed my first newsletter from Integrated Technology Services, LLC, and was glad to get it done. But what turned out to be the best part? Email from friends and colleagues who received it and just wanted to drop me a note. The notes weren’t very long, but they allowed us to reconnect, something we […]

Welcome

It’s taken some time to get going, but I’m pleased to announce that Legal Tech Blog is live — and alive. That’s right, or should I say, “that’s write.” Rather than only author periodic columns about technology and the practice of law, which are limited by space (and deadlines), I’m happy to unveil Legal Tech Blog, where I can share my views with others, and learn from them as well. So, join in, have fun, tell me what you think, and let’s enjoy technology together. Dan Siegel
