Vote for FindLaw's Technologist Blog in the ABA's 'Blawg 100'!

Last year, for the first time ever, FindLaw made the American Bar Association's "Blawg 100." In fact, until the final week of voting, our Technologist blog had a strong lead in the popular vote in the Legal Tech category. Alas, much like my Kansas City Royals' charmed run to the World Series, we had to settle for second place.

This year, however, we hope that you'll help us reach the top. Our Technologist blog is once again on the ABA's "Blawg 100" list, and once again, the ABA wants your votes for your favorite blogs -- which, of course, includes us. (Right?)

What's a Technologist?

Why vote for Technologist? Because it's simply the greatest legal tech blog out there.

Last year, we focused on increasing the number of gadget and software reviews, as well as the intersection between outdated laws and advancing technology. This year, we stayed the course, and continued to laud and ridicule software, hardware, and those who endanger privacy rights.

For me personally, it was another year of doing what I love most: Playing with every piece of gear and every gadget I can get my hands on and telling readers (a) whether it works, (b) whether it works for lawyers, and (c) whether it is worth the cost. It's a great excuse to pick up a few new toys, and if ABA accolades follow, that's pretty great too.

A Word From Our Editor

"This is the second year in a row Technologist has been nominated, and I couldn't be more proud of the work our writers put into it," FindLaw Blogs Editor Andrew Chow said. "It's our goal to keep practitioners on the cutting edge of legal technology news, and that's exactly what our team does."

Chow also shared that Technologist "is one of the blogs that I look forward to editing the most. Our writers come up with such unique legal angles to technology stories and review some of the most talked-about new gadgets available for lawyers. Personally, I learn something new from almost every Technologist post that we publish, and I think that's reflected in our second 'Blawg 100' nomination."

If you haven't voted yet, you may do so until December 19, 2014, on the ABA Journal's website. A quick registration is required.
