This morning I met with Eric Jensen of Jensen Media. They have developed a great software application, called Visync, for synchronizing text with video for display during trials. We are both interested in promoting the Mac as a platform for legal work and Eric was interested in brainstorming how our forthcoming document call-out software might integrate with his video syncing system. There is certainly some great potential for presenting multimedia evidence in a clear and professional way on a Mac, and the new products that companies like Jensen Media and Bee Documents are working on will make it even easier to present data in a courtroom setting.
It seems like the Pacific Northwest is full of specialty software shops building cool products for the Mac. Companies like Delicious Monster, Ranchero Software, Omni Group, Panic, Jensen Media, and Bee Documents. Of course, there are few big companies around here to, but you have to love the entrepreneurial spirit that the Mac platform seems to encourage. I'd love to get out and meet all of you guys eventually so drop me a line if you are reading my blog and doing cool Mac stuff in the Pacific Northwest.
