"One very ingenious young lawyer out of California did just that to give herself a competitive edge. Allison Margolin, a newly minted Harvard Law School graduate, who concentrates in criminal law, is very passionate about the decriminalization of marijuana.

The video allows her to showcase her mission through a medium her client base would most likely use." Connecticut Law Review

Top Ten in Tech

By Jason Krause

Web 2.0

A lot of people use the term Web 2.0 even though there’s no agreement about what it means. It could be one of those buzzwords that come and go, but the phenomenon behind it is real—the proliferation of free or inexpensive publishing tools that allow anyone and everyone to have a Web presence.

CRAZY NICK by Scott Beddome

You could say that Nick Won is crazy and he'd likely agree. His hope and vision as expressed by his new venture, PC Jjang’s, definitely qualifies him. But before you write him off, you may first want to listen to his story..
Nick's been through a transformation that is much more than the 60 pounds he lost and his new six pack abs. Nick sees things through different eyes, or so you'd think, that maybe they were actually removed and replaced with different ones that have built in rose colored lenses. His new vision is so clear and pretty it draws you in. If you are a young person in this impersonal, inhuman age of disconnect, he is especially concerned....

A John Lennon tribute by Allison Margolin

Today is the 26th anniversary of John Lennon's death. It is especially significant in these times to remember the message he propagandized through billboards in the time before his death: War is over if You Want It.
