21 Blogs of Interest for a Law Firm CIO / IT Director

Hot on the heels of LawNet 2004, here's an interesting find for Legal CIO's:

Ed Schembor's Blog looks relatively new and has a new article listing and discussing suggested blogs for Law Firm CIO / IT Directors to read. He's picked a number of legal technology blogs, many of which I've read and listed here in my blogroll. Welcome to the blogosphere Ed.

Ed states: "The list of blogs I have put together below covers the ones which I have found are ideally suited to the knowledge needs of a senior project manager, director of technology or CIO at a medium to large size law firm. These blogs generally cover strategic aspects of technology of interest to law offices, and may also cover more tactical and technical subjects."

Ed, you're off to a great start, but I'd add the following blogs to your list, as they tend to have either a compelling strategic or legal IT flavor, or both:

I'm sure there's even a few I'm forgetting, with apologies to my fellow blawgers.

Thanks for the mention of Real Lawyers :: Have Blogs Jeff. I try to offer some wisdom or insight on the Internet marketing of law firms once a day if I can.

I'm not always on everyone's short list of blogs law firm IT and leadership folks should look at. Perhaps that's because folks look at my blog as being done by someone who actually is in the business of designing and developing blogs for the legal profession as opposed to someone in the legal industry itself.

Stay well.

I was surprised at the number of people at LawNET who didn't know what a blog was (evident by the number of questions I got about my "I'm Blogging This" t-shirt worn on first day of conference)... glad to see this huge list of people in the legal community by both of you getting into the world of the blog.
