    Great article and great concept. I think Technologists should spend time mastering these tools. The legal industry is not the most progressive adapting to new Technology, however, the generation of lawyers that is graduating today has different demands and uses of technology; they will demand these tools. Who ever can figure out how to make this work safely for them will be the next superstar in the Legal Technology world. ¿ Pablo G. Coste

    Hi! I am consultant in the areas of management, technology and quality law firm in Brazil. Your article is very interesting, but the office must take to get to adapt to this concept. Still, I think it is stronger ideas and concepts that can change society. Congratulations for the idea!

    Great article! However, based on my experience the challenge is trying to get Attorneys to adopt the concept versus the technology. I am finding that some folks see the value of a wiki whereas others shy away from it because it is new and difficult to see how it would make for a better work product in the end. Any ideas?
