There is some buzz in the legal press about an #Rex, a young attorney with 76,000 followers and a believer in sponsored links. “Rex Gradeless” is a recent law grad who is passionate about the law and also about making money on the Internet. Is there a conflict between the two? Will clients who follow him from his sponsored links want to use him as a lawyer? Will people who know him as a lawyer be put off by his making money on the Internet? Do people under thirty think about such distinctions or is the new Web 2.0 world just a big messy jumble.
I have no answers, just questions.
