In keeping with last week’s theme about online disruption, I thought I would recycle another CLE blogger’s post about legal content on TED. TED offers countless lessons for professional development people. From the optimum length of a presentation to the value of hybrid events, TED has single-handedly transformed audience expectations about conferences and learning.
Having trouble making the connection with lawyers and legal content? Check out this great list of Top 10 Legal TED Talks from Tim Baran at www.legalproductivity.com. Front runners on my “must-see” list are Let’s Simplify Legal Jargon, Why Eyewitnesses Get it Wrong, and How I Beat a Patent Troll.
For more first-hand experiences about the scourge that is patent trolls, check out The Real Toll of Patent Trolls, in the December issue of Inc. magazine. Shocking stuff, and probably very interesting real world content for an IP for non-IP lawyers CLE.
In the interim, bring on the TED videos. Can you say DIY CPD? Hoo ya!
