Really Simple Competitive Intelligence

In my last post, I was whining about how I’ve grown impatience at waiting for articles I’ve written for print publications to appear in print.
Today, my latest technology column for the ABA Journal appeared on the online version of the magazine. In that column, I want to write about simple, practical and inexpensive ways lawyers can use technology in ways to make their lives a little easier.
In this column, called “Really Simple Competitive Intelligence,” I wanted to give a gentle introduction to RSS feeds, but in the context of how you can use them (and email alerts) to bring you information about yourself, your firm, your clients and other topics of interest with little effort and potentially big results. See what you think. This article will be a good lead-in to an article I’m involved in on competitive intelligence that will be coming out soon.
I also wrote (on a very short deadline) a sidebar for the feature article in this issue on Mac vs. PC for lawyers (by Rick Georges and Ben Stevens), where I was asked to do some quick recommendations/descriptions of three Macs and three Windows PCs (it’s after the main article). Of course, new products have come out since I wrote this. I’m intrigued by the new MacBook Pros with multi-touch and I’m starting to be influenced by Ernie the Attorney who seems to be ditching his old girlfriend Google (inside joke) for the Mac Air.
