I always recommend that lawyers interested in technology, especially lawyers within easy reach of Chicago in mid-March, try to attend ABA TECHSHOW. I might show a little favoritism for TECHSHOW because I used to be on the board, but it’s a great show if you are interested in educational programs about practical ways practicing lawyers can use technology for their benefit.
I see that February 1 is the deadline for a $100 early bird discount. The registration page also details other available discounts. I’ll also note that joining the ABA’s Law Practice Management Section was one of the best moves I made in my legal career, and it entitles you to another discount for TECHSHOW.
I’ll be speaking at two sessions this year, with two of my favorite co-presenters, Dan Pinnington and Tom Mighell.

Working Together from Wherever You Are: The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaborating on the Internet
Friday, March 14, 2007
Collaboration is no longer an option. Online tools like WebEx, Sharepoint, Acrobat Connect, Basecamp, Zoho, wikis and others make it easy for lawyers to work instantaneously with clients and colleagues, whether they’re across the hall or on the other side of the world. Come join the authors of a soon-to-be published ABA book on collaborative technologies as they discuss the options available to lawyers, developing a collaboration strategy, and the ethical implications of working with others in an online environment.
Speakers: Tom Mighell, Dennis Kennedy

Hope to see you there. I always try to make myself available to meet with as many readers of this blog as I can while I’m in Chicago for TECHSHOW.
