During testimony in "Pao v. Kleiner Perkins," former partner Trae Vassallo identified herself as having "thought leadership in connected devices." Here is the coverage of that trial by Colleen Taylor in Tech Crunch.
At Legal Tech, the meme of Information Governance, especially for connected devices, dominated. Recently the Federal Trade Commission had published a report on the Internet of Things. Here you can read it.

Lawyers know they need a niche. Well, the niche to be in is connected devices, both in terms of companies producing and using them and on the consumer side. In a CCMI Survey, 73 percent of the executives interviewed indicated that mobility was at the "top of mind."
This week I am navigating my way ghostwriting four articles on mobility. It's in my financial and personal branding self-interest to get that niche information down cold. Once I do, I'm much more marketable.
