Back in the day (2001-05) I was a blogger.  Not a blawgger, as that time period coincided with my law school years, so maybe a law-student-blogger, I don’t know.  Anyway, it was a while back, before Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and all this synergy we’ve got going on now.  It was difficult to manage connections because you didn’t always know who was using what platform.  Not to mention that even through the mid-2000s, a cell phone was still mostly used to make calls.

Now, it’s a bit easier.  This very blogging platform, WordPress, allows (almost) seamless cross-posting with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and a number of other social media platforms.  I can blog from my phone, tablet, by email, by text, (probably) by voice (need to look into that one, I could see potential for danger there after a night of partying), soon enough there will be a social media optical implant.

I’m not saying much that’s original here, just a musing on the start of this new blogging venture and adventure (or maybe I’m just old).  In any case, my purpose here on this series of tubes is to invite everyone in for a conversation: conversations on law, career, Fishtown, Philly, blogging, food, sports, pop culture, humor … an amalgam of topics.  So I’m going to throw it back to you, the audience (like I used to do in my talk radio gig in undergrad, yet another thing that made me much more interesting back in the day) and ask what you would like to discuss on this here blog.  (That said, it’s my blog.  I’m not offering legal advice; don’t post racist or other trolling crap; treat everyone as you would like to be treated; and be gracious to your host.)

Least Funny Top 10 8 List Ever

Where oh where do I start?  None of this is stuff that has not been said before, but it’s a pretty high-profile person saying it.  Dean Frank Wu, of UC Hastings College of Law says it best, that “there are simply too many law students training for a J.D. in a market that is already saturated.”

It should be noted that the Wu quoted in this article is neither Hong Kong action director John Woo nor the Wu who micturated upon the Dude’s rug.

Welcome to SlepnerLawBlog!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged but I’m back.  Welcome to SlepnerLawBlog, the official blog of the Law Office of Isaac F. Slepner.  While the blog’s focus will primarily be on legal issues and topics of interest it will also feature thoughts on popular culture and current world and local events.

As for the Local Rules:  Kindly share your thoughts and feedback, but if you post anything that is blatant trolling or reeks of obvious racism, your comment will be deleted post-haste.  Multiple offenses get the ban hammer.  The Local Rules are subject to amendment, deletion or other change at any time.  Most importantly: nothing on this blog is legal advice.  You pay for that; this is free (hat tip to Fishtown Lawyers for that gem).

And on that note: Welcome to the SlepnerLawBlog!!
