As most of you know, I am quite a believer in ABA TECHSHOW, having served on the ABA TECHSHOW planning board for four years. I am pleased to report that there is life after TECHSHOW board, however. I’ll be quite happy to be speaking at ABA TECHSHOW 2006 with no additional adminstrative duties.

Here’s some information about ABA TECHSHOW 2006 for you to put on your calendar. It will be held April 20-22, 2006 (about a month later than usual) at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers. You can register and locate much more information at, including the complete schedule of CLE presentations. But here’s an important note. The Early Bird registration ends March 10, 2006. Since registering by that deadline saves you $200, it seems to be a really good idea to calendar that date and make up your mind by that time.

On a personal note, I’d like to suggest that you make your flight reservations home on Saturday for a little later than usual. Due to some of the events relating to celebrating the twentieth anniversary of TECHSHOW, the Sixty Sites in Sixty Minutes presentation will be on Saturday, April 21, from 11:00 a.m. until 12 noon. It will be followed by the door prize drawings. I will be returning to do that program again, along with Bob Ambrogi. We will be joined by the lovely and talented Natalie Kelly (whom many of you know as Natalie Thornwell.) In this day of the dawning of Web 2.0, there are lots of new essential websites and web services of use to lawyers and we promise to provide some fun and entertainment, along with the infroamtion you need to continue as (or become) a power Internet user.
