Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would attend Princeton. Boasting two former presidents, several supreme court justices, the founder of Amazon, and chairman of Google as some of the famous alumni. Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to “Princeton, NJ” for the second Industry Summit coordinated by the National Center for State courts (NCSC). The goal of the summit was to bring NCSC staff, court representatives and their system providers together in a non-tradeshow environment to talk about the current and future state of technology in the courts.
I am human. I am not perfect. I make errors, as all humans do. I can also appreciate all the advances in technology that allow me to reduce my error rate. Whether it be the little red line that shows up underneath words spelled incorrectly while I am typing an email, or the GPS on my phone that reroutes automatically after I miss a turn. These advances in technology allow me to focus on other tasks that humans are needed to accomplish, that no robot or software can supplement.

I have worked at Extract for four-months now, and my knowledge of Government entities, document classification, indexing, and data redaction has far exceeded my wildest expectations. Next week you will not find me behind my computer at my desk in Madison, WI, but rather attending the PRIA 2017 Winter Symposium to sponge up even more knowledge of how the Extract Systems Platform can be beneficial for any Land or Property Recorders offices in counties across the nation.
