Helping Fan the Flames or Catch the Rioters?

by Tony Rushin

An article in the Tuesday, August 9th ABA Journal caught my eye because of the legal implications (shutting down BlackBerry service?) and turned out to be very thought-provoking.  Do smart phones and social media give the edge to rioters – who can organize and mobilize more quickly now – or to law enforcement – who have access to the same information and can use it to stem the riots and catch/prosecute bad guys later.

Check out the article and let me know your thoughts: “UK Official Calls for BlackBerry Ban to Help Control London Rioting”.  Enjoy!

This is the 17th of 23 blogs I’m writing to celebrate the Atlanta Association of Legal Administrators’ 23rd annual Business Partner Expo.  This year the Business Partner Expo will be held from 3:00 – 6:30 pm on August 17th at the Cobb Galleria.  Over 150 legal administrators and their guests are expected to be on hand learning about the latest technologies, finding solutions to business issues, uncovering emerging trends and developing valuable partnerships to help their law firms.  Already an AALA member?  I’ll see you there!  Not an AALA member?  Give me a call at 404.943.0800 x133 to discuss how you might be able to attend as a guest!
