#SenseiSherlock was delighted to have lunch with Sharon, John and their friend Paul Fletcher, the editor-in-chief of Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
David Bilinsky, a friend and colleague of Sensei’s Sharon Nelson, authors the blog Thoughtful Legal Management. He recently did a post where he asked his thought leader friends their predictions of what is in store for the legal profession in 2015. Sharon was one of those thought leaders and here is her response:
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has been released and, according to these lawyers, it finally lives up to the standards of a laptop. It is lighter and more mobile than even the lightest laptop, which makes it better for travel. However, this tablet can download the software and applications that many lawyers use in business like Acrobat, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, while also supporting multiple users. The Digital Edge host Sharon Nelson purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 recently and has put it through the test of whether this tablet can actually replace the laptop she uses for her business.
In this episode of The Digital Edge, hosts Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway invite Nelson’s business partner, husband, and technology expert John Simek on to analyze the statistics of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and assess for whom it can replace a laptop computer.
Sensei is very excited to be the “water sponsor” of the Fairfax CASA Run for Children 8K/3K 2015. The race will take place on May 2, 2015 at the Fairfax County Courthouse Complex. Fairfax Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to ensuring that the most vulnerable of children — those who are caught up in the confusing, chaotic and scary child protection system that they unwittingly become a part of — do not fall through the cracks. On average, this race attracts nearly 1,000 runners and walkers, 250 volunteers, and raises almost $85,000 each year to support Fairfax CASA’s advocacy work with abused and neglected children in the community.
Sharon and John have been volunteering for this organization for years now and are honored to be a part of this incredible event yet again.

Ever since the publication of The Checklist Manifesto, we have heard stories about how hospitals (in particular) and many other entities have been aided in efficiencies and “not dropping balls” by using simple checklists. The same principle applies to law firms, so you may want to check out a new book, Checklists for Lawyers, just published by the American Bar Association.
On Friday, December 5th, a Ride the Lightning post was featured in PinHawk’s Law Technology Daily Digest. Ride the Lightning is an electronic evidence and information security blog created and maintained by Sensei’s President, Sharon Nelson. The post “Murder Via the Internet? Anything is Possible in an IoE World” discusses the inevitable truth that murder is possible and will happen via the Internet one day. PinHawk’s Law Technology Daily Digest is a daily overview of technology news for technology managers in law firms, corporate legal departments, and others serving the legal market.
