  10. 13. <ul><li>Connecting for Job Help by Barbara Rose </li></ul><ul><li>Gwynne Monahan is not a lawyer, but she knows what it’s like to lose a job. So the Twitter thread she spotted in May about lawyer layoffs caught her attention. “Wondering why laid-off attorneys don’t band together and start a new law firm,” a lawyer tweeted. </li></ul><ul><li>Attorney Victoria Pynchon asked if someone would use Ning, the social networking platform, to start a site where lawyers could help one another weather the downturn. Monahan jumped on the idea because she wanted to learn Ning. Ten minutes later, she tweeted, “@ vpynchon asked if anyone wanted to create a Ning site, and so I did, and here it is: Lawyer Connection.” </li></ul>
  11. 14. What about boundaries? Victoria Pynchon ADR Services (c) 2009 As Anne LaMotte says in Bird by Bird , we each have our own emotional acre and we can do anything we want on it. We can also include and exclude anyone we want. If you are a private person, draw a clear boundary between your private life and your online life. You have a multiplicity of selves and you do not need to bring all of them online. The ones you DO bring online, however, must be AUTHENTIC.
