Avoiding traps

Clay Shirkey says, "The best way to learn something is when someone else figures it out and tells you: 'Don't go in that swamp. There are alligators in there.'" I've sent 30 years building a network of professionals that help me do just that. But sometimes that's not possible. Sometimes you are the one doing it first. I also think that some lessons you need to learn personally. They can't be taught by avoidance. Read more at Knoco stories: Is Learning from Failure the worst way to learn?

Still Blockbuster?

Casey Sullivan has a great post today. He asks the question, "Are You Netflix or Blockbuster?" There is something missing from the title though. At one point everyone was Blockbuster and that was good. "Are you STILL Blockbuster?" is perhaps the more important question. Casey concludes, advising law firms, "They just need to realize how some simple changes can benefit their processes, automate their unprofitable tasks, and allow them to bring in more billable hours. The cloud made Netflix. It killed Blockbuster. Which are you?" Read more at Closing the loop: Are You Netflix or Blockbuster?

A New & Better Conference

The Association of Legal Technologists (ALT)is hoping to do something different, something better when it comes to professional networking and conferences. Our first conference, "ctrl-ALT-del, Networking Rebooted" will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, from February 11-13, 2018. I am particularly jazzed about the theme, "legal design thinking." I hope you will come and be part of it with us. Read more at Legaltech news: With 'Legal Design Thinking,' ALT Eyes New Type of Legal Tech Conference
