The Impetus: I’m not really sure why. I like to think that I have something to offer. More realistically, I like that I have an excuse to stay up-to-date on something I am passionate about. I love computer, technology, and innovative ideas. I’ve been involved in the computer industry since I was a little boy in the mid ’80s (with a mom who had a M.S. in Computer Science). So here I am loving what I do, both professionally and on the side.
The Goal: By combining significant amounts of formal training and real world experience in legal practice, journalism, and computer science, I am creating this site with the stated goal of establishing a resource for lawyers and attorneys, journalists, creative thinkers, and entrepreneurs (and other professionals) to gain larger audiences and wider distribution for their knowledge and suggestions, whether it is via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social media outlets. It is high time that the valuable information and ideas we individually possess get shared with those who may benefit from them.
Whether you are using social media for personal reasons, professional purposes, or both, this is your place for information, ideas, and suggestions. Your information at the world’s fingertips.
While “crowdsourcing” is an over-hyped buzzword in my opinion, there is significant value in drawing upon the thoughts and opinions of various individuals and experts in their respective fields and areas of talent. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss ways that we can collaborate, work together, and partner up to make the experience for all users better and more inclusive.
I believe that the Web is only as good as the people who contribute to it. At some point, I hope to be considered as one of the positive contributors to what is happening in the legal world and beyond.
Tyson: lawyer, journalist, writer, computer geek, and a whole lot more.
