When LXBN TV’s three-man video crew made their way out of the Hilton New York’s large rotating doors and into the unseasonably warm sunshine hitting NYC’s West 42nd Street, we could barely believe it was all over. Events and projects like this are often chaotic and stressful but, at the same time, over before you know it.
After what seemed like both moments and an eternity since Jared Sulzdorf and I wheeled our guerilla operation into LegalTech New York late Sunday evening—past professional construction crews that may as well have been assembling small yachts as exhibit booths—we shot one last video, looking back at the entire process.
There was a lot that went into it, and many people to thank. And because I didn’t hit everyone in the video, I’m going to try to do so here. Without any of the people mentioned here, this would not have happened: Henry Dicker, Vice President Events, Executive Director of LegalTech; Alexis Burgess, Marketing Manager at ALM; Kevin O’Keefe, LexBlog CEO and Publisher; Kevin McKeown, LexBlog President; Brian Briddle, LexBlog Creative Director; Joshua Lynch, LexBlog Project Manager; Lyda Hawes, LexBlog Director of Client Services and my phenomenal boss; Brian Hefter, LexBlog Developer; and, of course, my two counterparts on the three-man crew: Editorial Associate Jared Sulzdorf and freelance videographer-for-hire Todd Weissfeld.
With those reeled off, let’s take a look at some of the coverage. Here are a few of my favorite interviews:
- Brett Burney of Burney Consultants on the iPad and the Best Apps in the Legal Community
- Ralph Losey of Jackson Lewis on Predictive Coding and Transparency in E-Discovery
- Chris Paskach, Partner at KPMG Forensic Technology Services, on Statistical Sampling
- Keynote Speaker Don Tapscott, Co-Author of Macrowikinomics, on the Digital Generation and 5 Themes in Tech, Biz and Law
- Qualcomm Corporate Legal IT Manager Rajan Gupta on Leveraging Tech for Lawyers
- Gina Buser of Traveling Coaches, Inc. on Talking Technology to Lawyers
- Greentarget’s Aaron Schoenherr Reporting on Social Media Use by in-House Counsel
- Fastcase President Philip Rosenthal on Broken Business Models and His Company in 2011 & 2012
To see all of the videos—I promise they are worth taking a look at—along with curated blog posts, go check out the LegalTech New York channel on LXBN. We’re still rounding up the last 1 or 2 but they should be on there very shortly. There’s a lot of superb insight here, and a ton of work that went into it, so have a look.
Again, this was a phenomenal experience. Whether it be at LegalTech again, or another event, I really hope we get the opportunity to do this again soon. Many thanks, again, to everyone who made this a possibility.
