    What the people need
    Is a way to make em smile
    It ain’t so hard to do if you know how
    Gotta get a message
    Get it on through
    Oh now mama, don’t you ask me why
    Oh, oh, listen to the music…♫

    Words and music by Tom Johnson, recorded by The Doobie Brothers.

    Kevin O’Keefe’sReal Lawyers Have Blogs” blog was kind enough to start a series of Q&A posts regarding the upcoming ABA TECSHOW in Chicago on March 13-15, 2008 with yours truly. Rob LaGarta did the interview:

    David Bilinsky of Thoughtful Legal Management [LexBlog Q & A]

    As the ABA TechShow draws nearer, you’ll start to notice certain LexBlog Q & As that bear the TechShow’s badge (above) in place of our guest’s photo. This is your indicator that the interview you’re about to read is with a legal professional scheduled to present at TechShow, and that at least a portion of our conversation is focused on the event.

    Our first guest is David Bilinsky, Practice Management Advisor and staff lawyer for the Law Society of British Columbia and author of the blog Thoughtful Legal Management. Dave will be speaking on two panels at TechShow:

    • “Records Management Technology: It’s A Small World After All”, with Jesse Wilkins (3/13, 4:15-5:15 p.m.)
    • “Drafting Bills Your Clients Will Rush To Pay”, with Steve Best (3/14, 1-2 p.m.)

    Find out more about Dave’s blog and his goals for TechShow after the jump.

    In the interview I talk about new ABA Techshow speakers including Kevin O’Keefe himself, Nils Jensen from Victoria and Dominic Jaar from Montreal, among others.

    What is interesting is that Rob asked about where did the idea come from about using music lyrics to start my posts. You have to read the full answer on Kevin’s blog – but: “What the people need Is a way to make em smile
    It ain’t so hard to do if you know how..gotta get a message, get it on through..oh oh, Listen to the Music….”
