Meta Data: 51+ Posts Summarizing the 2014 #ABATECHSHOW

51 Posts from the 2014 #ABATECHSHOW

We’ve had a couple days sift through the mass of social media posts, articles and blogs about the ABA TECHSHOW – word plethora comes to mind.  By way of Twitter comparison:

One difference in terms of coverage generated is that the ABA Journal did an amazing job covering the sessions, news and the conference. There are several links to the ABA Journal’s coverage included below.  In addition, the March/April edition of the ABA’s Law Practice Magazine is still quite timely and relevant to the show.

Here are the 51 posts we’ve curated that summarize the ABA TECHSHOW:

I don't follow #ILTA, but much of the #LTNY stream is merely vendor pitches ("stop by booth 415") and other meaningless blather ("so excited to be going to #LTNY"). I suspect that analysis would reveal that #ABATECHSHOW attendees share at least as much (if not more) substantive information on the hashtag, and make more IRL connections, than #LTNY attendees. That's fairly significant when you consider that #LTNY is many times larger than #ABATECHSHOW.


@LisaSolomon  It's a fair point Lisa, say perhaps 1,300 vs 13,000 attendees?  The size of LNTY notwithstanding, ABA TECHSHOW had a good showing for social. There were plenty of pitches in the ABA TECHSHOW stream too -- and no doubt we contributed some of that -- but I think we'd agree with you there's a much tighter, more integrated group of people at TECHSHOW.
