I’m heading to Chicago for what I believe will officially be my “umpteenth” visit to the ABA TECHSHOW. It’s definitely the legal tech conference where I have the most fun.
In big news, after more than 230 podcast episodes of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Tom Mighell and I will record our first podcast while actually in the same physical space while at TECHSHOW. That should be both fun and a little different for us. I’m so used to sensing Tom roll his eyes at something I’ve said that it will be weird to see him roll his eyes in person. Our topic will be a meta-topic, the future of legal tech conferences, because . . . well, why not?
I’m looking forward to a great TECHSHOW experience and attending some of the related events around the show.
I’ll start with the new Women of Legal Tech Summit and also get to the Chicago Legal Tech Meetup and the Beer for Bloggers event on Friday evening.
I’m not speaking this year, so I’m looking to wander around the show (focusing primarily on the Academic Track this year), see the exhibit hall, and talk with as many people as I can. That’s how I maximize my learning.
As is my tradition, I’ve signed up to staff the Conference Concierge desk on Saturday morning and that’s a great way to meet me.
I’m also looking forward to helping Carla Reyes and a group of Michigan State LegalRnD students navigate TECHSHOW, learn about legal tech and network at the show.I’ll also help the Legal Talk Network with some interview podcasts. Let us know if you have an idea for an interview show.
And, of course, Tom and I will be happy to sign copies of the new edition of our collaborations tools and technologies book.
Hope to see you there. It looks like you can ping me if you want to try to meet, but I try to be approachable, so just walk up and say hello.
I’ll also be tweeting at @denniskennedy and the conference hashtag is #ABATECHSHOW (not yelling – it’s a naming/branding thing).
