Real life question asked of my by one of my attorneys today:
Him: “So, have you ever heard of blogs?”
Me: “Yes, I have. Matter of fact, my site that is up for the SXSW Web Award is one.”
I couldn’t help but laugh. We had just finished up our meeting where we reviewed the open cases we have and what needs to be done on each of them. Then he started looking around his desk for something. He pulled out a copy of the ABA Journal, which has an article in it about “Blawgs.” (Get it? B-law-gs.) It mentioned Glenn Reynolds in passing, since he is a professor, not a practicing attorney – the focus of their article.
He asked if I thought a Blawg would be a good addition to our firm website, which it could be if done right. I felt like I was slipping back in time as I launched in to sales pitch mode from my past life on how the software we would use depended on the platform our site is hosted on and so forth. Then it hit me just how far I have come in the past 2 months. It’s a world apart.
After I wrapped up my conversation with him, I returned to my office and went back to work on the Special Exceptions that I want to have drafted before I leave tomorrow afternoon. Some moments my life almost seems surreal.
