Rethinking Technology: A new adventure with a Tablet PC

This will be an interesting blog to follow, as Doug Sorroco begins working with his new Tablet PC. Doug is a lawyer working in the IP realm. Here are his thoughts on how the Tablet PC fits into all of this:

What does this have to do with Rethink(ip)? Everything.

One of the goals of Rethink(ip) is to discuss new and innovative ways of serving client needs in the intellectual property realm. IP lawyers spend most of their time in the trenches with technology and science innovators (well, at least they should be) – any tool that improves interaction and communication is well worth incorporating into the mix.

In the short time I have been using the device, I have already seen some tremendous inking possibilities for client work:

* using mindmaps to sketch out patent application components,
* collaboratively drafting documents and disclosure documents and
* using other tools such as Go-To-Meeting and Camtasia Studio to promote collaborative learning and technology development.

The first piece of software to find its way onto my new R15 is MindManager – the integration with the inking capabilities is amazing. The second piece of software I put on the machine is ActiveWords. If you haven’t yet tried out ActiveWords, in a nutshell, it will change your practice – just ask Steve, he is doing some amazing patent related things with ActiveWords.
