Liveblogging From ABA Techshow

I am attending ABA Techshow this week, where I am speaking on two panels. A number of legal bloggers are here. Surprisingly, some of them are even finding time to blog about all that is going on. At SoloBlawg, for example, Ben Cowgill talks about the prevalence of e-discovery discussions and vendors here, noting that the importance of e-discovery is apparent everywhere -- in lectures, mock courtroom presentations, the exhibit hall and informal conversations. He adds:

"[O]ne is almost tempted to think that the 'e' in 'e-discovery' means 'everybody' because it is the topic everybody's talking at, not only here at TechShow but in the field of legal technology in general."

Meanwhile, Simon Chester from  liveblogged yesterday afternoon's keynote by G. Burgess Allison, who talked about Thomas Friedmann's The World is Flat and its implications for the legal profession. Also blogging from TechShow is Jim Calloway, who wrote not long after he arrived, "I've already picked up a couple of pointers and seen some cool new product demonstrations."

Sometimes those pointers come where you least expect them. Ellen Freedman of Law Practice Management describes it this way:

"As is often the case, some of the best conversations occur at or near the bar with people you've never before met or heard of, or with old friends. Creativity abounds, war stories apply practical context, and great information is garnered. Here is where innovation is often borne, or caught, like a contagion, and brought back to the home town."

Let us hope that innovation is, indeed, infectious.
