As a big fan of both The Daily Show and Fareed Zakaria, imagine my surprise and delight when Jon Stewart’s guest, Zakaria, recently told the live studio audience that Automation was changing the way legal work, specifically discovery, was being conducted today! Perhaps the most interesting quote was
“…machines can do things that people used to. There’s now computer programs that can do stuff that lawyers used to be able to do, discovery and things like that. May not be such a bad thing!”
Well, AutoReveiw has now officially reached national, international really, proportions for both economic analysis and comedic value. Sounds like we’ve about “crossed the chasm” to me. For the full June 7, 2011 Stewart-Zakaria interview clip, please see Valora’s website, here.
