The coming of Winter and the Fall of the year
means one thing in New England: There’s another FirmFuture Conference
in the offing.
. . . Well, at least, that’s what it’s meant for the last two years . . . before that, it probably had more to do with the homespun goodness of a James Taylor
, or warm maple syrup
, both of which are similarly delicious.
(Ah, simpler times
But, if you want to access some of the best advice respecting leveraging technology for your law firm, and marketing your practice, FirmFuture’s right in your wheelhouse, much like a Josh Beckett meatball
, I know.)
This year’s conference has nestled into a warmer spot upon the calendar; whereas the past two FirmFutures have taken place on December 1, the law gods have seen fit to bless us with a new date for this seminal event, which is now closer to the Summertime.
(Watch it snow now.)
This year’s FirmFuture will take place on Monday, October 1, 2012 from 8-2 at the Copley Marriott
But, the probably more favorable weather is not the only
reason you should be looking to attend the new year’s version of FirmFuture.
Presenters and topics include: Bob Ambrogi
, on the effect of new technology on the practice; David White
, on pimping your website; and, LOMAP
’s own Rodney Dowell
, on time management.
But, that’s not all: for the full slate of speakers and programs, check out the FirmFuture Conference agenda, here
If you wish, then, to slake your legal technology and marketing jones, you should register for FirmFuture
. . .
. . . Just don’t pay anything to go.
Readers of the LOMAP Blog
can attend FirmFuture for free by registering with the discount code: LOMAPGuest
Well, sure, you probably could have guessed that that was the code; but, we’re not interested in playing games here
— we’re just going to give it to you.
What you might not have been able to guess, though, is that the discount code is only good for the next two weeks
So, if you want in for nothing, you’ve got until September 14 to register
Hopefully, FirmFuture will be in your future.

‘Variations on Baker Street’
is famous for many things, including serving as the address locator for a number of history’s most significant investigators, including Danger Mouse
(not the DJ
— though that’s, like, a grey area
But, did you also know that ‘Baker Street
’ is one of the best songs of all time?
Quite popular, but never entirely given its due, as a card-carrying member of the ‘best songs of all time’ club, ‘Baker Street
’ was a colossal jam and an iconic ditty, written by Gerry Rafferty
But, in addition to the original, there are a number of other excellent versions of this song, of which I want to make you aware.
Rafferty’s own extended version
is very good. Livingston Taylor
, brother of James
, has, in my opinion, the best cover
The Foo Fighters
rolled out a rock version
, which was issued on a re-release of one of their early albums
. Jars of Clay
offers what-must-be a religiously-inspired live cut
(Dude’s killing the melodica
) Waylon Jennings
applies a country spin
(You knew that was coming.)
And, even the London Symphony Orchestra has descended to the creation of its own reverse engineer
