2015 just might be my favorite year. We presented at San Diego Comic Con, were nominated for a Geekie Award, AND NOW have made the ABA Journal Blawg 100 for the third year in a row.
I want to thank all of our readers and the Editors at the ABA Journal for selecting us for the Blawg 100. There are many excellent legal blogs. It is a very high honor to make the Blawg 100. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and are very glad you enjoy The Legal Geeks.
Jessica Mederson and I started The Legal Geeks with the goal of discussing all of our geek loves and the law.
On this journey, we have meet judges, lawyers, and law students who also love all things geek. With us often are our good friends Judge Matthew Sciarrino and Gerry O’Brien, who have shared their insight on everything from Kree politics to Batman being a state actor. This year has also been special, because we have been joined by attorneys Roger Quiles, Megan Hitchcock, and Brad Blanchard, who have contributed guest posts on geeky legal issues from video games to Back to the Future, to The Arrow.
2015 has had many high points for us. Jessica and I have presented on Star Wars with Judge Paul Grewal at SDCC; I had the chance to podcast with my friends at Monster Party; Steven DeKnight, the executive producer of Daredevil, Retweeted two of my Daredevil posts on attorney ethics and self-defense; and I have been privileged to speak at comic conventions on the Constitutional issues in Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter.
It is very reaffirming to me to see people pack a room to discuss Con Law, because it means “normal” people care about the law. On top of that, it has been a surreal experience when people have recognized me on the exhibit hall floor and stop to say hello. This has been a really fun year and thank you to everyone who joined us for the adventure.
So, thank you ABA Journal for helping make 2015 a fantastic year to remember.
To the future, because the best is yet to come.
