Ideas Becoming Conversations on the Web

July 28th, 2009

I had a happy milestone this week, when Carolyn Elefant picked up on my recent post about free and low-cost legal services.  She looked at the concepts from the angle of solo and small firm practice.  Her post was then subjected to close scrutiny at AdamsDrafting before finally ending up on the ABA Journal’s web site.

This is clearly a topic of great interest to lawyers and I am thrilled to see it discussed.  It was also a first for me to see a meme posted in this blog picked up and analyzed by others from multiple viewpoints.  Thanks to Carolyn, Ken at AdamsDrafting and Sarah at the ABA Journal for adding your thoughts.  The discussion becomes a fluid, roving one and I learned a lot from your posts.

[In ~2 years of blogging I think this is my very first post *about* blogging.  I promise not to do it often.  I love to see ideas turn into conversations- as long as the conversations are about more than the blogs themselves]

  • The post has gone even further. Jay Furlong and Doug Cornelius also have some excellent posts on the topic. I was also thrilled to see the discussion. Generally, when books like Free or End of Lawyer Come Out? people either react in a knee jerk fashion or are completely “rah-rah” about them. Thoughtful discussion and conversation is much more satisfying and in the end, much more likely to help transform those ideas into reality.
