AFTER a long winter lull, it seems that legal technology has caught absolute fire again. My inbox is swollen with new releases, new products, new hires, new companies, new services, new acronyms.
Most noticeable: an explosion of new "electronic data discovery" products and services -- watch for more on this topic in coming issues.
In this issue, we focus on some long-simmering trends: changes in video teleconferencing technology; imaging; and messaging. These product lines seem to have gained momentum in the post-Sept. 11 days, perhaps because so many of us are trying to minimize our travel schedules, both to avoid airport security hassles, and to have more "quality" time with family and friends. Speaking of which, it's summer! So head to that beach, at least for a day or two! I plan to do the same!
