Legal Tech is beginning. The Hilton in NYC is already buzzing with attendees on Sunday night. Even before the show, the elevators tell a story. 

For the last few years, a Legal Tech vendor has an ad running on continuous loop on the closed circuit TV in the elevators. (Otherwise it’s a news channel.) Three years ago, knowledge management was the topic; this year and last, it’s e-discovery. I don’t know if the “elevator index” is a reliable predictor (leading or lagging for that matter), but take it for what it’s worth.

Of course, the great thing about the elevator index is that it goes up and down. You just have to figure out which!
