For the next 2 1/2 days, ABA TECHSHOW will be taking place in Chicago, Illinois. This year there are sessions over 8 tracks ranging from Advanced IT to Cloud & Collaboration, e-discovery, iOS, Large Firm, Litigation, Mac, Social Media, Solo and Small Firm (I and II), Tech Grab Bag, Tablets & Smartphones and others all on the theme: “Bringing Lawyers and Technology Together”.
If you can be there, you can experience the incredible range of sessions, speakers and topics that are the hallmark of ABA TECSHOW. Sessions such as 60 Sites in 60 Minutes and 60 Tips in 60 Minutes are long-standing stalwarts of the Conference and always a big hit. Then there are sessions that are totally new such as: New Geolocation Technologies AKA “Hello Location-Based Discovery.” The Mac invasion into the legal sphere continues with such sessions as”The Super -Awesome Mac Hour of Amazement.”
One great session first thing this morning was “Office 365 the Lawyer’s Preview” that showed how Microsoft will be taking all of us into the cloud, courtesy of the new collaborative tools that they have built into the web version of the Microsoft office suite (and courtesy of their new pricing scheme for the desktop vs the web versions of their venerable office suite).
The highlight of this year’s conference will be the New York Times Columnist and host of NOVA ScienceNow David Pogue’s keynote presentation.
If you have never been to ABA TECHSHOW you need to mark March 27-29, 2014 in your calendar – now – to attend this amazing conference.
