Cloud Computiong for Lawyers Cloud computing moves the desktop to the internet.  Cloud based applications can now do many of the things that were previously possible only on the desktop. Microsoft Word is no longer required to write a letter, now you just need a web browser to visit Google Docs or Adobe Buzzword.
 
Another task that the cloud handles well is building and editing interactive websites for public or private purposes.
 
Sites that allow regular people to edit and add content are generally called “content management systems.” While not everyone wants to personally interact with their website, the option exists. With cloud based applications, the options have proliferated and they tend to bring the web and the people who use it closer together.  
 
It’s the age of the hands-on web, and no coding is required. 
 
If you would like to try your hand at building websites I suggest Google Sites. It’s free and included with every Google Account.  
 
If you are working on a case with someone, a Google Site works well for collaboration. A Google Site, using the list page template works well as a message book. Just set up a couple of desired fields and be sure to subscribe to page changes.  Whenever your secretary leaves a message for you by adding to the list the site will send you an email.  You will have a complete list or your messages and an email for each one.  No more asking or waiting for your messages and no more looking around for those little pieces of paper. 

The video below prompted this post and demonstrates to a potential client how easy it would be to add and edit information using the CMS that runs this site.  The concern was that their people would not want to interact with the website for fear of complexity and computer code.
 

 

About half-way into the video, I demonstrate "publishing in the blog".  If you would like to publish here, I’d be happy to set you up with an account to do so.
