The Main Course: 5 Things That Made Me Think This Week
The Time for Legal Ops May be Now: Olga Mack makes a compelling argument.
Florida Launches an Enhanced Lawyer Referral Service: a cool A2J project for those in Florida who will directly benefit, and a harbinger of good things to come elsewhere.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT vs. project management: I enjoyed Ken Grady's piece on the distinction (though I used all caps - his article just used initial caps!)
Law Firms' Shopping Mall Problem: what a brilliant insight about how shopping malls do business and the challenge of that approach for legal work. Read Jordan Furlong's article here.
Corporate Law Embraces AI: a really interesting report on its own, and even more so because it was written by Bain & Company. I think it's gratifying that major consulting and investment companies are starting to put out white papers on legal tech.
Singing Ice: I was near a frozen pond this week, and the ice was making a sound that sounded like a cross between a whale song and laser gun from a sci-fi film. I grew up in Massachusetts, playing pond hockey and even doing some ice fishing...yet had never heard that sound (or even heard it mentioned). I did some research and it turns out that it's well documented phenomenon. If you've never heard it, listen/read up here.
