Hello MILOfest!

Filed under: Conferences | Tags: |

Going to MILOfest (Macs in Law Offices) annual conference is an odd experience. It’s a bit like Lex Luthor going to Lexor. Um, there are no statues, mind you. However, I do have people coming up to me and saying:

Hey, you write planet 10 tech!

Or

You write that disability blog!

It’s nice (if a bit disconcerting). So, thank you for reading and for saying ‘hi.’ Its really awesome. I’ll do my best to not blow up this haven while fighting Superman.


Macs in Law Offices 2011 Conference Coming Up!

Filed under: Conferences | Tags: |

MILOfest (Macs in Law Offices), the premier conference for lawyers and law firms who use Apple computers in their law practice has set a date for the 2011 conference:

November 10 though 12, 2011 at the Coronado Resort Hotel at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida

Each year (this will the be third) the conference has gotten better and better. It is an awesome chance to mingle and pick the brains of the best Mac legal technologists in the country. Past conferences hosted founders and developers from major Mac legal software companies such as Clio, Rocket Matter, Market Circle and others.

One of the best things about being a Mac using lawyer is that the community is so small and tightly integrated that everyone wants to help you when you are looking for solutions. MILOfest has been our annual chance to get together and learn from each other. If you want to learn more about it check out the MILOfest website and see my videos and posts from last year’s conference.

Tech girl extraordinaire, and host of GeekBeat.tvCali Lewis talked to Planet10tech at the OpenCamp conference about the different impacts made by blogging, audio and video — and how to get started!

This video is part 1 of 2. You may recall my prior post about recording several videos before realizing the external mic was not working. Well, this is one of those video. The sound quality is ok, but not stellar. However, I thought you might still enjoy seeing Cali speak about getting out there and creating your own content.
