From The Editors
This issue marks yet another milestone for Law Technology Product News: our first single-topic, supplemental issue -- an Internet/Intranet annual roundup. You'll find hundreds of products, systems and services organized in these categories:
It will come as no surprise to most of our readers that the Internet and the technology that underlies it is the focus. Four years ago, when LTPN began its explosive growth, quickly becoming "the Bible" of the legal technology industry, the Internet was something that most of us didn't even know existed. Today, many of us wonder how we ever got along without the marvels the Internet gives us.
We've changed the format for this special issue to make it an ongoing resource for keeping up to speed with the dynamic development of the Internet. There are more articles than we usually run, which are intended to be a useful guide to many of the problems and issues posed by the new technology.
And we've created a roundup of every Internet/Intranet-related product, system or service that has been featured in LTPN during the past year. We hope this overview will help our readers choose the Internet items that are right for them, theirs firms or their companies.
We extend our thanks to the many vendors and manufacturers who have been so conscientious about sending LTPN their new product announcements. Your cooperation in this endeavor has enabled us to become the most timely and widely circulated publication in the industry.
