Tom Mighell and I have recorded another episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast and it’s now available on the Legal Talk Network and on iTunes, with an RSS feed here. The episode is called “The Electronic Legal Pad and the Post-Paper Practice of Law” (show notes website) and here’s the episode description:
Will lawyers ever move past the ever-present legal pad as their most trusted tool for practicing law? Tablet PCs have been around for quite a while, but lawyers are now using iPhones, iPod Touches and other devices with touch screens. Are the days of the paper legal pad numbered? In this episode, co-hosts Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss whether lawyers will ever embrace touch technologies.
We discuss whether the current role of multi-touch technologies in iPhones, IPod Touches and other devices, talk of new Tablet PCs, including the oft-rumored Apple Tablet, and touch features in Windows 7 will move lawyers away from their trusty paper legal pads to some kind of electronic version of the legal pad. We talk about our own experiences with Tablet and touch devices, analyze the prospects and make a few predictions.
In our audience questions segment (we always welcome your questions for any podcast), we look at recent large disclosures of Internet passwords, suggest ways people can do a better job on passwords, and ponder whether it’s time to change all of our Internet passwords.
We end the podcast with our Parting Shots – practical tips you can use right away. I single out Andrew Dlugan’s Six Minutes public speaking blog, especially its weekend list of great tips and links on public speaking and presentations. Tom talks about folder sharing and bulk uploading in Google Docs and alternatives to the Windows Task Manager.
Give our new episode a listen and let me know what you think. Show notes are here.
