Dennis Kennedy’s Links of the Week – March 30, 2008

Links of the Week is a regular feature on this blog where I list some of the most interesting links I’ve found during the previous week – sort of a “best of” from my Google Reader Shared Items. The idea is that I pick out a set of links that I might have wanted to write about or that I found especially thought-provoking or useful. I might or might not agree with the posts or items I link to, but I found them to be something I wanted to share.
On to the links:

Read the blog posts and RSS feed items I find most interesting on Google Reader Shared Items or subscribe to its RSS feed. High volume, but lots of interesting items that will get you thinking.

Started My New Job

As some of you already know, there’s been a lot happening with me in the last few weeks in addition to the publication of the new book.
I’ve joined MasterCard Worldwide as an in house counsel focusing on information technology law and working out of the St. Louis offices. My six word summary – great people, great work, great company. It’s a great opportunity that I’m very excited about, even though it brings my solo law practice to an end.
A commonly-asked question: will there be changes to this blog and website? Certainly – at a minimum, I have some updating to do and I’m getting started on that. I’m still sorting that out and also taking the opportunity to assess what directions I want to go with the blog. I’m guessing that I’ll focus to an even greater degree on legal tech topics and areas of personal interest. I haven’t written on legal topics on this blog since Missouri put into place advertising rules that I couldn’t understand how to comply with, and I don’t expect to go in that direction in my new position either.We’ll get that worked out. I might even take this opportunity to help my wife start a blog.
I’d enjoy hearing from readers with their suggestions of how I might refocus the blog a bit – comment on this post or email me at denniskennedyblog @ gmail.com.
It’s also worth saying again, as I mention in the disclaimer on my page, the posts and opinions expressed on this blog and this website are solely my personal opinions. They do not represent or reflect (nor are they intended to represent or reflect) the positions, opinions, viewpoints, policies and/or statements of my employer or any other entity or person.
More about this later.

Book Groups and a Book Report

Tom and I could not be happier with the initial response to our new book, The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together, which has been tagged as a “Best Seller” at the ABA Web Store.

If you’ve already bought the book, we thank you.
We’re still working on getting the word out about the book, so we’d be grateful if you would mention the book to your friends or blog about it.
We’re especially pleased by the people who’ve told us that they think that the book would be valuable to people who aren’t lawyers. We think so too.
While we continue to work on getting the companion website for the book launched, we’ve started two groups for the book on the social networking sites LinkedIn and Facebook. On Facebook, check out and join The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies Group. On LinkedIn, look for the group called The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies.
If you’ve bought the book or are a regular reader of this blog and would to be a friend or connection of mine on either site, go ahead and invite me.
