Lawyers using RSS Feeds

This is an interesting post on the Tiggrsuccess Blog which dicusses how Lawyers are increasingly using new technology to improve productivity. The article specfically talks about RSS but mentions a number of other Web 2.0 applications.

There follows a list of 15 different ways Lawyers are using RSS Feeds, some of these are obvious some less so. Amongst these my favourite has to be Ego Feed

"First and foremost, lawyers want to know what is being said about their firm. It is easy enough to monitor search engines and news searches using RSS. Lawyers create what is commonly referred to as “ego searches”. These are essentially keyword searches (the keyword is the firm or lawyer’s name). Each time the keyword appears in the news article or search engine a new item will appear in the feed. Lawyers can click through and view the source of the mention."
