Ed Walters and I had a little fun on Twitter this morning when Ed tweeted this week’s answer key. Being the rather smart-alecky person I am, I filled in the “questions” just for fun. Kind of like the old Johnny Carson routine of Carnac the Magnificent.

So, I thought we’d have a little fun and post an answer key of our own. We’ll let you pick one or more and give us the corresponding question.

Answer Key:

A1:    2% this year.

A2:    4th Quarter of 2015.

A3:    The New Westlaw

A4:    Microsoft Office, Flash, and Google+

A5:    Apocalyptic Coding

A6:    Stockholm School of Law

A7:    Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Sears, and Target

A8:    Scheduled to premier at SXSW in 2013

A9:    Social Media Guru

A10:  3 Geeks and a Law Blog

Put on your thinking caps… turn up your sarcasm… and give us some questions to go with these answers!
