THE new year has arrived, fresh at our door, with the inherent promise that winter will cede to spring. We will relish the transition, with hopes that the months ahead may be a bit easier than those recently behind our path.

We launch Law Technology News' 2002 year with an issue that has a decidedly "futuristic" tone. First, we offer a thought-provoking essay by Charles McCallum, which is bound to get you thinking about the future of technology and how it will change our practices and our lives. Stephen Gallagher, of the New York State Bar Association, explores how the previously vague notions of cyber communities became concrete in the aftermath of the September tragedies. Carol Schlein offers a practical, helpful analysis of case management options for small firm practitioners. Finally, Graeme Greenhill offers tips on how to evaluate software management programs. We hope you find these helpful!
On to LegalTech New York! Hope to see you there.
