As I'm writing this I'm fresh back from the ABA TechShow in Chicago where I got to meet my friends from Rocket Matter. Their booth was swamped with people for good reason. Rocket Matter is changing the way we practice law with a web based law practice management system that puts the old guys to shame. This week, Rocket Matter is giving away a free ebook, The Law Firm of Tomorrow, that shows the direction of all service-based businesses. This is definitely worth your time.
I'd like to thank Hoban Cards for sponsoring MacSparky.com this week. We all love our digital bits but there is something to be said for carrying a letterpress business card around. It shows people that you sweat all the details. It is just classy. I can't think of anyone better to make you that card than Evan Calkins at Hoban Cards. There are several templates to choose from or you can work with Evan to make something custom. (In addition to being a master at his 1500 lb. 1902 letterpress printing machine, Evan is a graphic designer.) That's what I did and I love the results.
There is a video of Evan in action at the website. Use the offer code "MacSparky" for free shipping.

I've long believed that computing platforms will become increasingly less relevant as we move forward with cloud-based software. The legal profession is a good example where just a few years ago, everybody used Windows PCs.
That's not true any more and this week's RSS Sponsor, Rocket Matter, demonstrates why. These guys have built the premier web-based law practice management platform that takes care of all your needs to run a small (or large) law office.
If you are a legal professional, check them out. If you aren't a legal professional but pay for your shoes through billing by the hour, you should still check out their free e-book, Ridiculously Remarkable Legal Billing, with immediately useful, practical advice, no matter what your trade.
