Community , Legal & Industry Education

It might seem like the last thing our industry needs is a new type of media. But in reality, ReplyAll—and its founder, Zach Abramowitz—is doing us a favor by introducing a different type of conversation into our everyday reading.

Technologists rely on practitioners for insights into what’s working and what isn’t. Likewise, practitioners rely on technologists to implement new solutions and continuously raise the bar on productivity.

Zach, an attorney himself, created ReplyAll—powered by a single line of code that turns email conversations into embeddable threads easily published by partner organizations—to help bridge the gap between journalism and simple networking. The result is a medium that fosters natural dialogue in a more shareable format.
