Here’s my advice for paralegals desiring to impress their bosses with their technology know-how. Don’t. Overdo. It.
Seriously, just because I subscribe to a few technology blogs and blathered about The Cloud and mobile security a few times, now my boss punts every technology question he has in my direction. Like I know it all. I don’t know most of it actually. But I can Google like a fiend, and therefore continue to give my boss the false impression that I know geeky stuff. (Also, I do learn a lot that way.)
So I picked the following 5 Geeky Things to Do Before I Kick the Bucket from PCWorld’s list of 50:
- Set up an array of at least three monitors. (Booyah, already on this, McGee!)
- Control my house using my phone. (Fix me dinner! Rub my feet! Clean up cat puke!)
- Master the art of typing on a touchscreen, without using autocorrect. (I suffer from Fat Fingers Syndrome, but am unwilling to have them liposuctioned even for accurate texts)
- Stage a gruesome scene for the Google Street View truck. (Maybe The Cat can vomit on my neighbor’s car, which is already on Street View. Creepy.)
- Develop a best-selling iPhone legal app. (Yeah, I changed game to legal app – I am what I am.)
I confess: I read PCWorld…and People Magazine. On the less exciting side of the geeky bucket list, I’m also writing an ethics presentation about technology, “Old-Fashioned Ethics in a Newfangled World,” and am planning to take some advanced Microsoft Office software classes after I finish the presentation.
You guys got any geeky goals on your bucket list?
