39 Articles and Blog Posts Summarizing the 2015 ILTACON

Thirty-nine posts is one better than the 38 summarizing the 2013 annual ILTA conference – the last time it was held in Las Vegas. In the 2015 summary, we’ve added the stats, quips and quotes, which is an idea borrowed from our summary in 2014.

There was an impressive volume of coverage stemming from the conference and especially solid summaries from the sessions – most notably from Legaltech NewsAbove the Law and the PinHawk Law Technology Daily Digest.  The latter is a free email newsletter edited by Jeffrey Brandt, registered the “biggest readership gains” in 2014 and is essential reading for all things legal tech.

The mix below is a curated list including our own coverage and that from around the web.  This year’s compilation is this week’s Friday Share.

ILTACON Social Media Quips, Stats and Quotables

Social media naturally makes a contribution to a technology show.  The blog network LXBN used Storify to summarize 10 ILTACON sessions  as did knowledge management (KM) guru David Hobbie:  Building Your Innovation Engine At ILTACON 2015.

Going back through our “favorite” status updates from Twitter, here are a few quips, stats and quotables that stood out for us — Mr. Hunt obviously gets our nomination for his prolific tweeting!

  • Technology dollars are often focused on partners in firms, but focus really should be millennials. (Christopher Hunt)
  • Growth rate of jobs in legal profession has grown since 1997, and since 2008 is up 9% for attys 8% for paralegals. (Christopher Hunt)
  • Morgan Lewis used conference style social apps to engage with their summer class during the program (Ted Graham)
  • Who’s evolving faster – law departments or firms? Brenton/NetApp says firms are much slower, and law schools slower still (Catherine J Moynihan)
  • tl;dr of #ILTACON : getting lawyers to do anything is really hard, but don’t worry because they’ll be replaced by robots and algorithms. (Brad Newman)
  • Watson’s handicap on Jeopardy was the ability to physically buzz in. Who knew. (Colleen Cable)
  • 64% men and 36% women are ILTA members currently-actually an improvement over past couple years (K Harrell-Latham)
