Atty, legal educator, writer, and tech enthusiast. I have taught legal research, writing, law & motion practice, pre-trial procedures, appellate advocacy and more to both paralegals and law students since 1999. I currently teach at Santa Rosa Jr. College in the Paralegal Studies Dept.
I am interested in philosophy,history,sociology,linguistics,logic,teaching,writing,all kinds of technology. My favorite music are 80's music,Celtic,Irish,world music. Movies: Shawshank Redemption; August Rush; Dead Poet's Society; Boondock Saints; Lord of the Rings Trilogy. TV: News and that's about it; MSNBC for now. Books: Too many to recount here. My Heroes are My mom and my grandma. My grandma got married the day before the stock market crashed in 1929. The day after,she considered herself lucky that she had 7 cents in her pocket and a part-time job as a grocery checker at a local grocer. She always told me that,back then,she could buy herself something to eat for lunch with that kind of money. My mom showed grace and tenacity in the face of almost insurmountable obstacles at time,often thrown in her way by those who felt threatened by her good looks,her wit,her smarts,and her fiery Irish temper. She raised me to be self-reliant and not self-absorbed. They were my first teachers; I miss them both very much..
I use Diigo because It is well-conceived, well-designed, and allows me to obtain cutting-edge information on many subjects. In particular, it is very useful for keeping me abreast of technology for educational uses.

Group interested in the effect/potential new and emerging technologies are having on the delivery of legal services and on traditional legal education in the U.S. and abroad. Representative subjects of interest include, but are not limited to: the growing use of social media by lawyers as well as consumers to research, organize, and maintain information and connections with information sources; technology and privacy; cybersecurity issues; virtual legal environments and use of virtual classrooms; the changing face of the legal academy; the rise of the paralegal profession, the paralegal's role as technology manager/expert for today's law firms; and the future of the legal profession in general. While this group is open to anyone interested in the topics, please refrain from making this group a rant and rave group. The focus here is on law and technology, in particular, and not on substantive legal issues. Thank you for your interest and kind consideration.
