Rick Klau, a partner at Google Ventures, has been set to deliver the Keynote address at ABA TECHSHOW 2014 on Friday March 28, 2014 at 12:45 PM. At Google Ventures, Klau helps lead Startup Lab. He was previously a product manager at Google where he led product initiatives on Blogger, Google+, and YouTube.
Rick will be discussing the latest in technology and how technology impacts the legal profession today. Previously, he has addressed the differences between “Digital Natives vs. Digital Tourists.”
At some point during the session, it occurred to me that what we were talking about was not a digital native in the sense I thought of a native; we were talking about a digital tourist. Natives know the lay of the land, they know all the secrets, and they know what makes their area special. Tourists rarely get below the surface – they may enjoy the place they’re visiting, but they rarely know what makes it tick.
