Feisty Forecast

With snowstorms in the east and torrential rains in the west, it is a stormy day here in the USA. One of the things I have long liked about storms is that as much as they bring chaos, they also bring fresh starts and new landscapes. Storms, both real and metaphorical, are a natural part of the cycle of growth and change. We have certainly weathered our share of storms in the informational and legal industries. Technology is just one example of such an upheaval that swept in and forever altered the forecast for our profession. We focus on the latest technological rumblings today with a late day edition of the digest. Enjoy!

Legal Ops Uprising

Earlier this month the American Bar Association held its annual Techshow. A showcase of the newest and the best technology solutions for the practice of law, it always attracts some of the industry's most forward-thinking luminaries. This year Professor Daniel Katz of Chicago-Kent College of Law stole the show with his observations on the state of the industry. Sean La Roque-Doherty shares the highlights of Katz's presentation in: ABA TECHSHOW 2018: The End of History and the Rise of Legal Ops.

Passing the Test

John Simek, VP of Sensei Enterprises, and the blogger behind Your IT Consutant, offers up a forecast of his own today as well. He issues a warning to those who are still saving their passwords in browsers and advises we take up password managers in: Don't Store Passwords in a Browser.
