Roundup: Bits and Bytes from the #LTNY15 Twitterati

Bits and Bytes from the LegalTech Twitterati

As the LegalTech show winds down, here’s a quick (and fun) roundup of some of the commentary, stats and insights we’ve observed on Twitter under the two most commonly used hashtags for the show:  #LTNY and #LTNY15.

1. Law technology and revenue.  “Firms with the highest rates of technology adoptions billed 25% more.”  @KPatelALM

2. Here’s looking at you!  “80% of you legal site traffic goes to bios…spend time building your digital presence and make your site engaging.”  @KevinBonsor

3. A picture is worth a 1,000 words.

4. Consolidation time. “Siciliano: in 10-15 yrs legal industry will be forced into consolidation. Traditional lawyers are cobblers of 19th century.” @JackieGardina

5.  File sharing risk.  According to date from Forrester Research, the biggest challenge facing governance is the proliferation of file shares (45%). @druvainc Also see: Study tells a Story about Law Firm File Sharing.

6.  Meet the Beer Lawyer! 

7. Data deluge. 
“The biggest problem we have as litigators is an excess of data” – @JeffDeGraff.” @SmarshInc

8. Face time value. “Many of the most valuable “sessions” at professional conferences actually happen in hallways, lounges and restaurants.” @bschorr

9. Juggling act.  Cool points for the 8-second Vine video!  To the best of our knowledge it was the only use of Vine at the show.

10. Towel please! “Visionaries always drive the Harleys into the pool. @JeffDeGraff@Belbey

11.  Really Big Data.  LexisNexis research has an unfathonable14 petabytes of data, which is some 50 times more what’s in the Library of Congress, according to Sean Fitzpatrick who runs a sister division.
