How is the Relationship between Lawyers and IT Departments Changing Because of Web 2.0 and Other Developments?

I’ve really been enjoying the SLAW blog lately and recommend that you check it out.
Here’s a great example why. Patrick Cormier writes a post called “The Uneasy Lawyer and IT Dialogue” that gives us much to think about in the dynamic of the lawyer-IT relationship and how Web 2.0 (or Law 2.0) concepts affect that relationship. Highly recommended.
The money quote:

Web 2.0 matters for the legal profession, because it promotes an information environment in which lawyers can simplify access to material of precedential value. The difficulty consists in selecting and optimizing the right mix of these technologies; finding how to leverage them and especially how to carefully deploy them within an integrated information management (IM) framework.
