Here a bot, there a bot, everywhere a bot bot

Shhhhhh. Don't tell the ABA or your State Bar but old MacDonald's 'bot farm is out there helping Joe Citizen with their legal issues. Joshua Browder, of DoNotPay fame, has bought Visabot (a visas and green cards system) and eliminated the fees to use it. He's also added getting an appointment at the DMV and suing in small claims courts to his list of helpful bots! Browder's vision is simple and clear, "Our goal is for the most simple legal issues to be handled entirely by robots and technology, so the average consumer will never have to know what a lawyer is."

Women in security

Some of the smartest people I know are women. I recently highlighted this year's Monica Bay STEM award winner. Monica herself counts in that category. My wife is wicked smart. My niece is working on the analysis of god particles data at CERN. My "west coast daughter" as I like to call her, is a true Google Goddess and has forgotten more things technical than I ever knew. I could rattle off several fellow female CIOs and CKOs who command my respect with the things they know. That's a long way to go to say, with all of the news lately, I thought I'd highlight this post about women in security. Read about Ann Johnson, Corporate VP, Cybersecurity Solutions Group; Diana Kelley, Cybersecurity Field CTO; Hayden Hainsworth, Principal Group PM Manager CxE, C+AI Security; Hemma Prafullchandra, CTO, M365 Security and Compliance; and Adrienne Hall, General Manager, Issues Management. They all know more then you do. Learn more by reading DARKReading: Meet 5 Women Shaping Microsoft's Security Strategy

AmeriGoat Express

Let's jump right to Mark Palmer's answer to this important question. "Why not, since you can accept nonmonetary items such as a goat for preparing a family's estate planning documents, so long as the goat was reasonable compensation for the legal services provided." So there you have it - goats - cryptocurrency, all the same. Actually I read somewhere (and can't remember where), that given the volatility of some of the crypto coins, you were supposed to convert it to real money ASAP to keep it all ethical.
