“If you’re going to use [cutting-edge] technology… you should use it in a way you feel comfortable telling your clients about.” —Sam Glover

Sam and Andy Mergendahl chat about the ever-increasing prevalence of Internet-enabled devices, otherwise known as the Internet of things, and what impact it will have on your practice and your daily life. The worst part of all this? You may now have to read the Terms of Service that comes with every new software package you buy.

Andy Mergendahl is a privacy officer at a large commercial bank. He’s also been a solo practitioner and a judicial law clerk. He considers himself a foot soldier in the War on Legalese (also known as the War Without End). Andy enjoys collecting names for bands that do not (yet) exist, being a runner (but not the act of running so much), and the bourbon Old Fashioned at Eat Street Social in Minneapolis. Follow him on Twitter and Linkedin, and check out his articles on Lawyerist.
