We came across this from blogger, mediator and attorney Steve Mehta in regards to how he uses his iPad to go 'paperless' for his work including mediation.
For several months, I have been using the IPad during my mediations and I thought I would report the results of how it is going. I must say that the IPad has and will continue to revolutionize the way that we as mediators and lawyers work.
I have been on a quest to try and make myself completely paperless and with the IPad I have achieved that goal. The reality is that the IPad can be used in many ways and can be customized to your specific needs. Here’s how I have been using it.
First, I use Dropbox. Dropbox is a cloud data service that is free (up to 2 gb of storage) that allows you to synchronize data. I loaded Dropbox onto my office hard drive, my assistant’s hard drive, my Ipad, my laptop, and other computers. Then I simply drag and drop files into the Dropbox directory just as if I was moving or copying them on to any other directory. Once that is done, then I can access those same files on any computer loaded with Dropbox.
