Not too long ago I had the chance to time travel. On a particular wintry day I finished a deal involving a cutting edge 21st century video rendering technology. Later that day I visited the offices of a prominent Brooklyn attorney. As I walked in, he was busy editing a document. With a pair of scissors in hand and scotch tape strips neatly arranged, he was carefully cutting out a section of the page and pasting a new one in. He looked at me and laughed. He said it would take him longer to fire up the computer and scanner and edit the document, so he just cut and pasted the good old way.

The contrast between my morning and afternoon could not have been any greater and to a large degree reflected the spectrum of practitioners and their use of law office technology.
