LTNY 2009: Video Interviews and Predictions for the Future of Legal Technology

Legal vendor West brought back its video interviews at LegalTech this year, providing a handful of reports from the show floor. Most of the interviews are with folks who fall somewhere under the West or Thomson Reuters corporate umbrella, but West did get a number of predictions from legal technology journalists during the conference:

-- Legal Blog Watch's own Robert Ambrogi discusses lawyers and social media.

-- TechnoLawyer publisher Neil Squillante talks about the future of mobile technology for lawyers in 2009.

-- Law Technology News editor-in-chief Monica Bay explains how legal professionals can adapt using technology during these tough economic times.

Incisive Media, publisher of this blog and the parent company behind LegalTech, also posted video dispatches from the show, including an interview with New York Personal Injury Attorney Blog's Eric Turkewitz, discussing his recent post on the future of the legal blogosphere -- and why Twitter isn't it. Turkewitz is a Twitter-sceptic, and his thoughts on the subject provide a thoughtful counterpoint to some of the Twitter mania at the show, which seems to have jumped the shark when one commentator repeated the claim that "Twitter is the single biggest branding tool since TV." Turkewitz has some interesting thoughts on the confluence of lawyers and social media in the next few years. If you don't want to watch the video, read all about it here.
