    ♫ Dust in the Wind
    All we are is dust in the wind…

    Lyrics and Music by Kerry Livgren, recorded by Kansas.

    I wish to say thanks to the Lawyers Weekly and Valerie Mutton for including me along with Jennifer Gray, Technology Integration Specialist at McInnes, Cooper in Halifax and Lawrence Pascoe, a lawyer in Ottawa, in a great article entitled: Technophile lawyers leaving luddites in the dust.

    Valerie listened when we talked about the transformational power of technology:

    “Ten years from now, Bilinsky says, there will still be traditional firms that use technology in a limited fashion, but there will be many others who will be the leaders. He says that now, with the introduction of the interjurisdictional practice protocol, it’s possible to build a practice that is national in scope even if you live in a small town or practice a niche area that might not be lucrative locally. You can use technology to market yourself and cast a wide net for your client base. Lawyers can also do innovative things like having a “virtual” law practice, with associates who are not physically present in the same city, let alone the same office — allowing you to hire that promising young associate, even if she doesn’t want to relocate.”

    You can read the rest of the article here.

    It is indeed refreshing that when we speak about the positive effects of technology on lawyers, it isn’t just dust in the wind…
