Time Celebrates You!

Jim Calloway of Law Practice Tips and Kevin O'Keefe of LexBlog post about Time magazine's selection of "You" as its Person of the Year here and here.  Both rave about how much we've gained from Web 2.0 developments like blogs, wikis and the advent of citizen journalism.

But has Web 2.0 changed the law?  I know that there's far more substantive information available to lawyers and the general public than ever before, through blogs run by law firms and law school professors.  At the same time, I think it's still too early for these advancements to improve the quality of representation that lawyers provide or to reduce the cost of legal service.  But in a few years, I believe that law firms and the practice of law will look different from its present state, in part because of the increased availability of information.  What do you think?
