The Legal Technology Category of the 2011 ABA Journal Blawg 100 Includes Too Many Damn Good Blogs!
I've narrowed my selection to three but just can't decide because they are all very deserving. Well, I (and you) have until until Dec. 30th to vote for your favorite blogs (in 12 categories) for the 2011 ABA Journal Blawg awards. Article here. Vote here (free registration required).
3 Geeks and a Law Blog: “It is a vital resource of ‘law geek’-related news, and I rely on it,” Jan Rivers, competitive intelligence liaison at Dorsey & Whitney in Minneapolis, wrote us. Last fall, the geeks started their Thursday Elephant Posts, which pose a question (What will your firm stop buying in five years?) and post answers from librarians, marketers and other legal practitioners.
Above and Beyond KM: Blogger V. Mary Abraham is a lawyer focused on knowledge management at Debevoise & Plimpton’s New York City office. Most posts focus not on incremental news developments in her discipline, but rather its “nontech challenges” and big-picture concerns: strategy, productivity, and encouraging strong-willed attorneys to share information systematically.
Slaw: “Slaw is to law what Slate is to popular culture,” law blogger Robert Ambrogi writes. “It is an online magazine with a diverse array of writers and perspectives covering a wide array of legal topics. It is always interesting, always smart and always insightful. It represents the best of what a legal blog—strike that—any blog can aspire to be.”
Congratulations to all! [JH]
