Podcast on Social Networking

I was a guest this week on Law Technology Now, the podcast hosted by Monica Bay, editor-in-chief of Law Technology News. Our topic was social and professional networking for lawyers. We discussed my recent two-part column on social and professional networking sites (here and here) and my just-published first look at the beta version of Martindale-Hubbell Connected. (A working version of the Martindale column is available here.) You can listen to or download the podcast from the Legal Talk Network.

NY Panel: Attorney Social Networking

August 20, 2008 · Filed Under Social networking, Uncategorized · Comments Off on NY Panel: Attorney Social Networking 

On Sept. 17 in New York City, I will moderate a panel, Web 3.0 Attorney Social Networking: The Next “Next” in Online Business Development and Client Service, with a stellar line-up of participants. Sponsored by the New York chapter of the Legal Marketing Association, the panel will include:

  • Doug Cornelius, a senior attorney in the Knowledge Management Department at Goodwin Procter and a frequent speaker and writer on the legal profession’s use of knowledge management, enterprise 2.0, Web 2.0 and social networks.
  • David Johnson, a former partner at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering and a member of the advisory board of Legal OnRamp, a networking site spearheaded by Cisco System’s General Counsel Mark Chandler that seeks to automate collaboration and content-sharing between in-house and outside counsel. David was the chair of what may have been the first networking site for lawyers, American Lawyer Media’s Counsel Connect. He is currently a visiting professor at New York Law School.
  • John Lipsey, vice president of corporate counsel services for LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell. John, who previously practiced law in Washington D.C., is overseeing the launch of Martindale’s new professional networking site, Martindale-Hubbell Connected.

The program is at noon on Sept. 17 at The Harvard Club, 27 West 44th Street in New York.
