Brian John Spencer

Legal writer/explorer guy

Hi. My name is Brian. I am a writer, artist, legal consultant and ideas person who lives, writes and talks about paradigm-shifting technology; and I lead others to do the same. I love using the enormity of the Internet to bring people and professionals together: whether through my writing at Elephant Creative, at  The Legal IT Insider, my blog Twitter for Law Firms, my other blog Social Media Law Northern Ireland or through my many other interests.

You can often find me doodling, reading or playing with new technology, looking for something to create and re-imagine, or enjoying life in Belfast.

Follow me on Twitter (@brianjohnspencr), read my personal blog The Ideas Workshop or visit my personal website here.

 - Twitter for Lawyers 

 - Social Media Law (blog on the criminal and civil laws that govern SM in Northern Ireland and UK)
