Growing up I have always wanted to go to Europe and visit some of their amazing attractions. Luckily for me LexBlog has an open PTO policy and my dreams are finally coming true! This fall my girlfriend Molly and I will embark on our Euro trip. Our plan is to fly into London since we found a non stop one way flight from Seattle for less than $400 which seemed like a very reasonable price…
Per an Economic Impact Report out from WeWork last week, small businesses are thriving as a result of locating in WeWork, not just because of the concept of “offices as service,” but because of the networking being done by their employees. And small businesses are not alone. Twenty-two percent of the Fortune 500 are WeWork members because of the opportunity to secure top talent combined with the entrepreneurial environment and culture. This Thursday WeWork is…
As Bob Ambrogi shared this morning, the LexBlog news network is now open to all legitimate law blogs (with a working RSS feed) – in the United States and worldwide.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban changed quarterbacks at halftime of the National Championship Game. Alabama couldn’t get anything going in its runing game in the first half. Trailing Georgia 13-0, Saban went into the locker room, huddled his quarterbacks together and said we’re going with Tua in the second half – and may…
A post on Bob Ambrogi’s LawSites blog has propelled many a legal startup to success. People have approached me at conferences asking if I know Bob Ambrogi — as if he were some sort of rockstar. I have seen other folks approaching Bob at legal conference receptions wanting to introduce themselves and a co-founder. They’re all hoping to get Bob to cover them and their company at LawSites. In addition to tech driven aggregation and…
Buffer is a web and mobile application that enables users to schedule posts to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. I’ve been using Buffer for years after people told me I was sharing some good stuff (other people’s posts and articles) on Twitter, but that a lot of it was coming out about midnight Pacific Time. Buffer enabled me to share posts as I was reading them, but to have them post to Twitter throughout the business day and early evening…
