Social Media for Lawyers - Powerpoint now available
Yesterday I presented a seminar to the Vancouver chapter of the Legal Marketing Association on Social Media and Social Networking for Lawyers where I set out my thoughts on why social media matters for law firms as well as introducing some of the major components (RSS, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, blogs) and how they all work together. The session generated a great discussion and certainly confirmed for me that social media issues and strategies are top of mind for many in the legal community as we delve into 2009. A copy of the powerpoint is now available in the resources section of the Skunkworks website. You can access it here.

Any and all interested parties welcome from committed luddites to the merely curious to hardcore techgeeks who will undoubtedly be able to teach me a thing or three along the way.

Courthouse Libraries BC is continuing the development of a major revamp of their web presence to be released later in 2009. As part of the development process, they are seeking input from 16 BC lawyers at a focus group session to be held on January 22, 2009 from 4:30pm-6:30pm.
