We all have a picture in our head when we hear the word “Superwoman.” Maybe you’re thinking of Gal Galdot punching through walls. Maybe you’re thinking of that friend you have who successfully works full time, raises all four of her children, has a sparkling-clean house, and somehow manages to bake her own bread every week. This week, I was monitoring LexBlog’s social media during ILTACON, and I ran across a conference session that…

It was announced today that the stumbling Tumblr is being acquired by Automattic, maker of WordPress.  This deal, which should ensure the existence of Tumblr for a while, will hopefully have an effect on something more important than Tumblr itself, Tumblr-style content. I am going to generalize my definition of the content here: Tumblr-style content is usually short visual based posts that have a minor amount of commentary.  This sort of content thrived for…
I’ve spent majority of my time at LexBlog visiting attorney websites and reading their blogs. Just last Friday, I went through about 500 attorney websites that claimed to have a “blog”. This batch of url’s has been filled with wonderful blogs and others that were more than lacking. This morning I came across a farewell post to a great blog that I had not known existed. The post can be read here: The Legal Whiteboard
Every day can feel like a never ending series of tasks.  When confronted with this unceasing tide of work, the compulsion is to rise up, face it head-on and defeat it.  Knocking down these tasks, labeling them as done and moving onto the next. This approach can grant that much sought after endorphin rush that one needs to move onto the next task.  Its a wonderful system, but it has issues.   I am not saying…
When we deal with our co-workers, we are often looking for way to compliment them. When searching for that perfect word to use, stay clear of the word tedious.  I don’t mean just avoid using it as a way to describe a person, which is something you should never do. Wow, I am impressed with how tedious you are! You should also avoid using it when describing what they do. Kudos to you!  I could…
What do you think of when you think of “mindfulness“? It’s kind of a millennial buzzword nowadays. I’m guessing you’re picturing something along the lines of relaxing by the pool, sipping a glass of wine after a long work day, or doing yoga while watching the sun rise. But what about mindfulness at work? You might be thinking what I thought when I first heard this phrase: “I’m pretty sure work, by definition, is not…
Some time ago, I started talking with a podcasting network about adding my retro podcast to their lineup. It was not high on my priority list, but I thought it would make for an interesting discussion. The discussions was short and confirmed something that had been rolling around in my mind for a while.  Companies and people create inconvenient systems in order to monetize them by removing levels of inconvenience. You see this all the…
What does one mean when they say, “publish?”  If you do a search for the word on Google, the top result is: (of an author or company) prepare and issue (a book, journal, piece of music, or other work) for public sale. – Google It makes me smile that a company that makes its money off monetizing content presents the definition of publish, purely as preparing a work for public sale.  Google is not alone in…
