  1. Adrian,

    Great interview with Larry. So, he’s not a cool aid drinker yet. 🙂

    It will be interesting to see how long social media takes to really gain some traction in the legal industry. IMHO, it’s not ‘if’ it’s ‘when’ you will start to see ROI from social media efforts.

    I guess we are still on the ground floor!
