Hyperion Law was on WGBH!

Posted on August 2, 2011 by

I’m excited to share that on July 28th, I had the opportunity to be on WGBH’s TV show, “Greater Boston”! It was thrilling to be on a panel of young entrepreneurs discussing start-ups and then to see the conversation on my televsion set :) Additionally, since public broadcasting and shows from WGBH were such a big part of my childhood, it was a real honor to be able to give back in a small way by contributing to their content. The video of the segment is below.

Supporting Local Entrepreneurs

Posted on June 10, 2011 by

This past Wednesday, Hyperion Law sponsored the monthly Innovation Nights event. If you haven’t already heard about this you should check out the web site and stop by one of the events. At each event, about ten companies get selected to show off their products. From those ten, the community votes for four companies to give five-minute pitches to the entire group. This is a great opportunity for companies launching new products to give demos, perfect their pitches, and get feedback from a group of entrepreneurs and service providers. It’s also a chance to get to know start-ups, experts, and friendly faces from around the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The next one is on July 13th – join us!


A “Twitterview”

Posted on June 1, 2011 by

"Microphone with 'On Air' light" So, I had my first “Twitterview” yesterday. Until a few weeks ago, it hadn’t occurred to me that you might use Twitter to interview people. Then I got introduced to @22Twts and The Godard Group, where they do exactly that. They send you the questions a few hours in advance and then you respond to 22 tweeted questions.

Now that I think about it, this is brilliant. It’s a fun challenge for the lawyer – you only get 140 characters to respond to really interesting questions! – and a fun way for Twitter users to get to know the lawyer. Here are some of my favorite questions (and corresponding answers) from the interview:

Q: What would you say is the single most important legal issue affecting clients?
A: Understanding case law’s impact on software #patents & how to draft claims satisfying legal reqs while remaining useful to business

Q: How do you describe what you do to people you meet at a cocktail party?
A: “I help companies protect their world-changing technology via strategic use of IP. And run a radically different law firm to do so.”

Q: What would you do if you weren’t a lawyer?
A: An astrophysicist or an anthropologist. Or maybe an anthropologist who studies humanity’s obsession with the universe ;)

You can see a transcript of the entire exchange here. And thanks again to Lance Godard and @22Twts for this opportunity!

LinkedIn Relationship Visualizer

I just discovered this neat LinkedIn feature that creates a visualization of your network. Here’s the one it generated for me:

I’m not entirely sure that this is useful for anything :) But it’s certainly pretty!
