Readers of this blog who will be in New York City on Friday (August 8), either for the American Bar Association’s Annual Meeting or otherwise, will definitely want to attend Tom Mighell’s presentation, Working Together, Wherever You Are: The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools (Friday, August 8, 2008, 2 :00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., Conference Room D, Executive Conference Center, Sheraton New York).
The presentation is based on our book. I’ll not be able to be there, but Tom will do an excellent job, and we’re trying to see if I can participate briefly during a demo of one of the online collaboration tools.
From the program description:

Lawyers and firms are increasingly seeking new ways to collaborate with colleagues, clients, opposing counsel, and others. This program will focus on the practical ways every lawyer can use existing and new tools to work better and smarter with others. [This session] will emphasize how to select and use various collaboration tools and technologies. This session is equally useful for both “techies” and “non-techies.”

We’re also hoping to unveil the new book companion site ( at the session.
This will be a great opportunity to explore some of the ideas in our book and see some of the tools we like in action. It’s one session from a series by the ABA’s Law Practice Management Section at the Annual Meeting and learn more about the benefits of membership in the LPM Section.
