Speed dating for a lawyers?

It’s Sunday morning and I’m watching Your Business on msnbc. The feature story is on SXSW, a trade show for converging technologies in social media, technology, creators and consumers. One of the activities at SXSW is speed dating for new companies and potential investors where new companies are given the opportunity to make quick pitches one on one to a variety of potential investors. Might the same format work for lawyers and firms looking for professional relationships and for lawyers looking for other lawyers for other reasons? Could this become a part of the CBA’s Annual Meeting, or would more privacy be preferable? Is this an idea the Young Lawyer’s Section might be interested in considering? For that matter, with all the dislocation among experienced lawyers, might speed dating for experienced lawyers work? How about speed dating online as an initial step? Match.com for lawyers seeking employment or employees, and a Match.com for lawyers looking for love. Hmmm……
