On February 15, 2003, a day much colder than the 80-degree February day we had today in St. Louis, I started this blog with a quote from Babylon 5. It was an early birthday present to myself that year. I’m not sure that I expected to still be writing it 15 years later.
The name of the blog, DennisKennedy.Blog, was a tongue in the cheek reference to the unlikely possibility that blogs would one day have their own top-level domain name. That day has come, and this blog now can be found at www.denniskennedy.blog.
The biggest change with this blog in the past year, a change that has been long overdue, is that we are now part of the Lexblog network. Kevin O’Keefe at LexBlog is one of my favorite people, and one of my best memories of the early days of lawyer blogging was a phone call I had with Kevin, who was starting LexBlog in his garage, during a layover I had in the Kansas City airport. I want to publicly than the LexBlog team for making the transition so easy for me. I’m a fan.
Tom Mighell and I just signed off on the final page proofs for the second edition of the second edition of our book, The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies. It’s now off to the printers and should be out in time for ABA TECHSHOW in a few weeks. I will admit to a silly moment while reading the proofs when I thought, “Wow, this is really good stuff.” The book writing process is a lengthy one and you can forget what you wrote earlier in the process (and whether it was Tom or I who wrote it). You’ll be hearing more about the new book soon.
One of the good things about finishing a book project is that it frees you up to do writing unrelated to the book. My blog tends to pester me about writing more blog posts. It’s a fair criticism.
The original (and current) tagline for this blog is “Legal technology, technology law and other musings.” Most of my thinking on legal technology can be found on The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast these days, but watch for the topic to re-appear more regularly on this blog. I have a suspicion that “other musings” might make a big comeback on this blog over the next year.
Every blawgiversary gives me the opportunity to say a big thank you to my readers. I’m glad you are reading. I always appreciate your comments and encouragement.
I’ve learned today that the 15th anniversary is the crystal anniversary. Perhaps it might be a good year to do some crystal ball gazing on this blog – about technology and other things.
