Since I co-host The Paralegal Voice (produced by Legal Talk Network) with Lynne DeVenny, I may be prejudiced but I believe it’s one of the best practice resources available for paralegals. I have to tell you, though, that Legal Talk Network produces several great programs that are a f’ree resource for you. It’s so easy to either listen at your computer or download them to your iPod (my favorite). Be sure to check out This Week’s Podcasts at Legal Talk Network to see what’s there for you.

The Siteless Web Presence
The conventional wisdom has long been that your website, or perhaps your blog, should be at the core of your web presence. Today, your Internet presence is likely to consist of LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts, and a variety of other places people can find you. Is this expansion of “presence” changing the common wisdom and bringing us to what’s been called the “Siteless Web”? In this episode, co-hosts Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss the changing Internet environment, whether a website really matters anymore, and how to manage your multi-faceted presence on the Internet. After you listen, be sure to check out Tom & Dennis’ co-blog and book by the same name, The Lawyers Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies.
