60 Sites in 60 Minutes

60 Sites in 60 Minutes is the most popular program at the ABA TECHSHOW.  Offered each year as the grand finale, it never fails to live up to it’s billing.   “What is TECHSHOW?”  you ask.  60 educational sessions offered in 15 different tracks over three whirlwind days each Spring in Chicago. 

Every lawyer should try to attend TECHSHOW at least once.   In the meantime, check out this synopsis of the 2010 presentation of 60 Sites in 60 Minutes.  Along with the law-related sites, productivity tips, and other great resources, you’ll find a little humor too.  (Not to mention 40 bonus sites.)  Enjoy!
