2001. Cue the Strauss, and let's have a moment of silence for that great legal technologist, Stanley Kubrick. Can it really be 2001 already? It seems impossible!
O.K., let's now segue from the mystical to the almost-mundane, and talk about word processing, the backbone of legal technology. These days, we take our word processing programs for granted, and generally don't even think about them (unless we go slightly nuts trying to turn off cloying features like Word's "AutoCorrect"). But in reality, the development of word processing has been nothing short of revolutionary. Now, virtually everyone, from the first-name-in-the-masthead lawyer to the receptionist, uses either Microsoft's Word or Corel's WordPerfect. So we thought we'd examine the state-of-the-art.
We also explore I.T. recruiting and offer tips to enhance relationships with consultants. Of course, we offer our usual panoply of features, and new products and services announcements.
