In this episode, we take a look at recent developments in podcasting, whether we are in a “Golden Age,” and what that might mean for you.

There’s been a lot of attention paid to the Microsoft Surface Pro and how the combo or hybrid laptop/tablet might be an ideal combination for many lawyers.

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, we take a look Microsoft and the Windows platform, what Windows-using lawyers can expect, and what your next moves might be.

Has anything really changed, or have we just reached another round of the AI debate? In this episode, we take a look at recent discussions about AI and lawyers, try to separate myth from reality, and ponder whether AI can take over the work of lawyers.

“Invisible apps” represent a new approach to apps. What you use the app for is something a bit different from the actual functionality underlying the app. Sound complicated? Maybe not. The focus changes from the benefit of the app and less on what’s under the hood. In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, we discuss invisible apps, how they might impact you, and whether they are the leading edge of a much more significant technology wave.

The history of legal technology projects, both in specific firms and generally, is too often a showcase of half-completed and failed projects. In a recent blog post called “The Human Barrier to LPM Technology: Will Lawyers Get to the Future?” Pam Woldow and Doug Richardson assess and analyze this history and the reasons for it. What are the barriers lawyers create to moving to higher levels of technology? In this episode we discuss why legal tech projects fail, the human element of legal technology and why Woldow and Richardson’s blog post should launch some important conversations.

Hillary Clinton’s personal email server has been all over the news recently. Many of these stories refer to something rather ominously referred to as “shadow IT.” Shadow IT refers to all sorts of self-help IT approaches employers who are frustrated with the technology they have at work resort to as workarounds. In this episode we’ll take you on a tour of Shadow IT, discuss some implications and approaches to deal with Shadow, and try to bring shadow IT out of the darkness and into the light.

We have some favorites that we want to share and we’d like to hear about your favorites. In this episode, we talk about accessorizing your technology, some of our favorite accessories, and how to personalize and accessorize your technology.

Over the past 20 years or so, lawyers have consistently seen the paperless office as the Holy Grail of legal technology. Most of the plans to reach the Holy Grail have ended up under stacks of papers. We’ve noticed a new flurry of interest in the paperless office, As part of our series of revisiting old legal technology concepts with new eyes, we wanted to if new technology has revived the paperless concept. In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, we discuss the paperless office, survey the current state of the art, and speculate as to whether, as we looked in other directions, the paperless office might have actually arrived.
