I went to Chicago last week for TechShow 2006 and, as I expected, it was a great learning experience. If you haven’t been to this event then you should make plans to go next year. It’s two and a half days of intense learning and networking. The leading technology lawyers are all there and it’s just a really great atmosphere. I’ve always wanted to learn more about Powerpoint and so I went to a session conducted by the highly-touted Craig Ball. I was blown away with his presentation. There are so many things that can be done with Powerpoint to communicate more effectively, especially in the legal realm.
I’m sure I’ll be back at TechShow in 2007, and if you want to learn how to incorporate technology into your law practice to be a better lawyer then you should consider going too. TechShow 2007 will take place March 22-24, 2007 at the Chicago Sheraton Hotel. Mark your calendar. And, if you are looking for some good quick tips, read the TechShow blog.
