Dane Ciolino and I are working on a book about how lawyers can create a paperless law office. We set up a website at paperlesslawyering.com
Yesterday I attended the Louisiana Bar Association annual conference in Destin, Florida, and spoke to a judges-only gathering. The title of my talk was Your Digital Footprint – It Never Goes Away.
The focal point was examining the effect of increasing digitization on our society. We are losing privacy, but perhaps gaining other benefits. Obviously a key question arises: is the trade-off worth it? I believe one has to examine all the consequences and benefits to reach a sensible answer, and I tried to cover the main consequences and benefits of digital technology. One thing’s for sure: digital technology isn’t going away. It’s going to keep spreading, and developing at an ever faster pace.
