Legaltech vs. Techshow: The Word Clouds Say It All

Just before Legaltech New York in February, I wrote here about the conference word cloud created by JoAnna Forshee at InsideLegal. Now, with the 30th anniversary edition of ABA Techshow starting next week, she’s done it again.

As she did for Legaltech, Forshee pulls the words from the conference agenda and creates the word cloud to show the relative weight of various themes, with the size of the word corresponding to its frequency in the agenda.

The difference between the two word clouds is striking. Whereas e-discovery dominated Legaltech, look at the words that dominate Techshow: lawyers, law firm, clients, practice, legal and learn.

If that isn’t enough to make you immediately register, I don’t know what is.

I’ll be there, presenting on two panels:

Hope to see you there.
