Editor's Note

Monica Bay, Editor-in-Chief DRAMAMINE please! I'm still reeling from Legal Tech N.Y. What a difference one year makes! Talk about a gear shift: from dot.coms to partnerships in 12 months!

Alliances may be the name of the game right now, but don't believe the doomsayers. The Internet is not dead. Dot.coms will revive, but with realistic business plans and less flamboyant marketing. (But I sure miss the sock puppet, those wonderful eToys ads, and's parties!)

This is probably a good time to remind ourselves that mistakes are not the same as failure. The greatest achievements come from risk-taking, from trial and error. To paraphrase Tom Peters, if you don't make mistakes, you aren't doing your job.

So don't go shopping for funeral black yet. The game's not over. The rules, however, are changing. The whole definition of what it means "to lawyer" is in great flux. It's exciting. It's nerve-racking. It's empowering. Remember the Chinese proverb: "Crisis is danger -- and opportunity!"
