Seeking the Golden Record

The perfect trifecta of big data, data analytics and AI is near. That assumes, I think, that we have found the golden record. Martin Doyle writes, "The Golden Record is the ultimate prize in the data world. A fundamental concept within Master Data Management (MDM) defined as the single source of truth; one data point that captures all the necessary information we need to know about a member, a resource, or an item in our catalogue - assumed to be 100% accurate."

Why bother knowing tech?

In his post today, George Khoury, Esq. asks if lawyers have to get along with technology. The answer, of course, is no. I mean why would you want to involve yourself in anything "that makes practicing law easier, more efficient, or cheaper?" Why would you want to get along with something where "the biggest changes, and the ones that threaten the profession, are still on the horizon and involve automating legal processes for legal consumers, adversaries, and law firms?" I mean just because "not using it could be a clear sign to clients of inefficiency or even incompetence" or where "not knowing enough about technologies relevant to a case could result in an ethics violation" are hardly sufficient reasons. Wouldn't you much rather bury your head in the sand and be irrelevant to your clients? Read more at Technologist: Must Lawyers Get Along With Tech?

Steal these!

I'm going to make these phrases super easy to steal. They are, "Absolutely!;" "In our experience, typically...;" "I'd be glad to follow up with you on...;" "The best person to speak with is...;" and "I'm happy to help!" When dealing with your clients - everyone can use them, from IT to lawyers. Read more at Law technology Today: Five Positive Phrases You Should Steal

ctrl-alt-del: Networking Successfully Rebooted

ALT's first conference is over. The discussion Sally Gonzalez and I led, "The Changing Legal Landscape: Envisioning the AI-Enabled Legal Team of the Future," was very well received. The various breakout groups came up with very interesting takes on who has a seat at the table once AI comes in full force to legal. One group was channeling R.E.M. as part of their viewpoint. Perhaps most striking to me was the format and the magnification of the conversation as it passed through the combined prism of law firm, client and vendor. Everyone as equals at the table. While talking and learning from your peers (the strictest definition) is definitely great - talking and learning from your extended peers (the extended definition) is even more so. The depth, flavor and nuances of the conversation were more intense. I think by any measure, ctrl-alt-del was a success. There are definitely improvements to be made, and they are being discussed even now, but networking HAS BEEN REBOOTED! If you have questions, drop me a line or check us out at http://altnets.org/

Title... blah blah blah

Microsoft patch Tuesday... blah blah blah. Fifty security fixes, 14 labeled as critical, 34 as important and 2 as moderate... blah blah blah. "Two notable vulnerabilities target Outlook," blah blah blah. "What's truly frightening with this bug is that the (Outlook) Preview Pane is an attack vector, which means simply viewing an email in the Preview Pane could allow code execution," blah blah blah. And the other exploit "means there's a potential for an attacker to exploit this merely by sending an email," blah blah blah. I know this gets old, but time to get patching.
