Practical Paralegalism’s Recommended Reading This Week

Can’t be a ninja this week? Get a ninja USB drive!

It’s been a busy weekend. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking to the Guilford Paralegal Association about mobile technology and ethics at the 5th Annual Spring Seminar, which included a packed house and great door prizes. Also, I got to hear Giovanni Masucci of National Digital Forensics, Inc. lecture about the dangers of using social media, as well as see his collection of cool flash drives.

On Thursday, I attended the North Carolina Bar Association Paralegal Division Council meeting, and was thrilled to see at least four iPads in use by attendees. I used the GoodReader app to view the extensive agenda on my iPad and save some serious paper. I know if I had to answer that age-old interview question, “If you were trapped alone on a desert island and could only have one item, what would it be,” I’d answer, “My iPad, duh.” (And not just because I could use it as a plate, too.)

This weekend I also tackled the challenge of living with only one closet, which I’ll share with you in a different post.

Here’s this week’s links: 

So, you medical and personal injury experts, what’s in this film? “Another 12 Bizarre X-Rays” (Oddee)
  • Pink My Brain ~ Elaine at I’m clothed much does so many incredibly fashionable things with thrift items, coupons, and re-worked clothes – plus she’s adorable in anything – that it’s hard to know which post to share this week, but I love the way she’s tied her scarf, and am wondering if I have to go all the way to Korea to get a ruffle skirt like hers.
  • When Function comes first ~ Target is having a big week in the fashion blogs for working women, also getting a shoutout at Corporette. Angeline at The New Professional is getting a lot of mileage from her Mossimo sheath dress, and knows the importance of working in a cardigan for air-conditioned offices.
Target also has affordable tanks to wear with cardis and blazers to work.

If you’re looking for more links and paralegal bonding, Practical Paralegalism has a Facebook page. Last week, the thorny (and sensitive) grammar issue of one space after a period, versus two spaces after a period, received quite a bit of attention. I also tweet links and paralegal musings at my Twitter feed, @expertparalegal.
