New Episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report Podcast is Now Available

The newest episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast is up and available on the Legal Talk Network and on iTunes. The episode is called “Learn to use NEW Technology: 101” and here’s the description:

How do people learn to use new technology — and is it different for lawyers & legal technology? On this edition of the Kennedy-Mighell Report, legal bloggers, Dennis Kennedy, Tom Mighell and Adriana Linares, discuss how to break it down so it isn’t overwhelming. Learn where the best resources about technology are and how e-Discovery comes into play for your law practice. Dennis, Tom and Adriana also take audience questions from the mailbag and wrap up with Parting Shots, leaving you with lasting tips and observations. After you listen, be sure to check out Tom & Dennis’ blog and book by the same name, The Lawyers Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies.

The new show notes wiki for the podcast is also now live at TKMReport.com. Great work by Tom getting the wiki up and going.
We’re planning to record another episode later this week, with the lead topic going to be Wolfram Alpha. We also will be looking for audience questions to answer on the podcast. Ask a question by leaving a comment to this post or emailing me at denniskennedyblog @ gmail.com.

Give the new episode a listen and let me know what you think.

2009 Legal Technology Trends Article in Law Practice Today Webzine

Let me recommend the new issue of the ABA’s Law Practice Today webzine. Wendy Werner has put together another great issue and I’m sure you’ll find several articles that will make your visit to the webzine worth your while.
This issue also contains my article, “Legal Technology Trends for 2009: The Year of Hunkering Down.
Readers of this blog will know that the legal tech trends article is annual tradition of mine. I also like to do what I did this year and post the first draft of the article on my blog before the article gets published elsewhere. If you are interested in my writing process, you can see how the article evolved a bit before it was published in Law Practice Today.
The article has nine sections:
1. Technology Budgets Get Decimated.
2. Making Do with What You Have or Doing More with Less.
3. The Mobile Phone as Platform.
4. Looking to the Cloud.
5. Using Tech to Get the Word Out and the Money In.
6. Focus on Client-focused Technology.
7. E-Discovery in Still Waters.
8. The Perfect Storm for Collaboration Tools.
9. A Potpourri of Predictions .

I’d enjoy hearing your reactions to the article. Also, we’re collecting questions for the audience Q&A segment of the upcoming episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast. If you have a question about one of the legal tech trends in the article or any other legal tech question you’d like us to try to answer on the podcast, let me know.

Kindle Me This – New Episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report Podcast

The newest episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast is now available for download on the Legal Talk Network. You can also subscribe to podcast on iTunes. Our friends at Rocket Matter sponsor this episode.
This episode is called “Kindle Me This.” The recent announcement of the larger Kindle DX and the seemingly annual summer rumors of an Apple ebook reader often referred to as an iPad got us thinking about the usefulness of the new Kindle and other ebook readers for lawyers. We talk about the Kindle generally and speculate on whether these devices are leading us to the replacement of the legal pad or a kind of legal pad 2.0. Give a listen to our thoughts on the subject.
Adriana Linares joins us again as guest co-host for this episode. We also answer some audience questions and give some helpful tech tips. My tip is about the new Google Profiles. We welcome your feedback on the episode and your questions for us to answer in future episodes.
As usual, we had the great team at the Legal Talk Network producing the episode. Follow the LTN Twitter feed (@legaltalk) for info on sending us questions for the podcast, details on a live feed during the podcast recording and info on the other great LTN podcasts.
Speaking of Google Profiles, Google recently made an offer of 25 free business cards for people who set up thier Google Profiles (or at least the first 10,000 who apply). Check it out:

Give the new episode a listen and let me know what you think.

Have a Question for Us to Answer of the Next Episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report Podcast?

We’ll be recording the next episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast on Friday, May 8.
Our new format has a segment where we answer a few questions from our audience. Of course, that means we need to have some questions to answer.
The working title of our next episode is The Kindle DX, the iPad, and Legal Pad 2.0. With the announcement of the new Kindle DX and another round of rumors about an Apple ebook reader, we take a look at the possible impact of these devices on the lega profession. Will ebook readers and other devices be game-changers for law school and the practice of law?
We’d welcome audience questions on (1) something to do with main topic or (2) a legal tech issue in general.
You can email me your questions at denniskennedyblog @ gmail.com or leave a comment on this post send a Twitter message to @denniskennedy, @tommighell or @legaltalk. You can also get information on listening to a live stream of the recording at LegalTalkNetwork.com..
Give the podcast a listen and let me know what you think.
