Fastcase at AALL
Fastcase spent a busy week in Philadelphia, exhibiting and having a great time at the American Association of Law Libraries Annual Meeting. Coming off of a win at the 2010 Annual Meeting for New Product of the Year, Fastcase took the opportunity at the 2011 meeting to highlight our latest features, recognize top legal innovators and of course, have some fun. With the Fastcase Cloud Printing launch just the day before the Exhibit Hall opening ceremony, our team had the opportunity to showcase the suite of applications that will provide users with one-click printing from a variety of legal applications. We were excited to be able to share this development first with some of the legal field’s most creative and forward thinkers. In addition to stopping by the Fastcase exhibit for demonstrations, word spread quickly about the new additions to the Fastcase t-shirt line. Many law librarians left the Annual Meeting with quite the souvenir.
On Monday, Fastcase announced the winners of our inaugural Fastcase 50 list. The list featured individuals from across the legal field including state bar leaders, bloggers, librarians and legal tech innovators and created quite a buzz at the Annual Meeting. To view the full list and read more about our 2011 winners, take a look around the Fastcase 50 winners page here – while you’re at it, start brainstorming your nominations for next year!
Wrapping up AALL 2011, CEO Ed Walters coordinated a panel to discuss the law library’s impact on the Law.gov movement. Building on the conversation started last year at a workshop at the Center for American Progress , Ed brought together panelists Greg Lambert of King & Spaulding, Sarah Glassmeyer of Valparaiso University Law School Library, Keith Ann Stiverson of Chicago-Kent College of Law Library and Carl Malamud, founder for Public.Resource.org. The group provided great insight from their respective backgrounds and assured that the conversation about open-sourcing the law remains open and active.
We would like to say thank you to everyone at AALL for another great Annual Meeting and for those of you who joined us in the PLL-Fastcase Hospitality Suite. We are grateful for your support of Fastcase. Let the countdown for AALL 2012 commence!
