I have added a News tab and update feature to my firm’s website, Infinity Law Group. It will be updated whenever there’s an event that I will be attending or speaking at. Please visit the new section for up-to-date information on my speaking engagements and services for the community.
Leanna Hamill over at Massachusetts Estate Planning and Elder Law Blog posted an entry about Project Lifesaver in Hingham, MA. As she says in the article, it’s a device that helps locate children or dependant adults.
Reading that reminded me of the AMBER alert Child ID Kit I saw a while back on Engadget. I’m not sure how well it works but the concept is sound. In addition, I read an article a while back (site unknown) where it suggested putting just a regular old USB pen drive around your child’s neck. In the pen drive, you simply have 1 text file listing the child’s name, phone number and address. So if your child gets lost and is picked up by the police or even by a good Samaritan, they can access the pen drive and know exactly who to contact.
Some might say that this is too much technology for such a simple situation but technology is advancing our lives everyday. We should use what’s available to enhance and better our lives and in the process, maybe even make it safer.
