These lie part-way between blog posts and tweets, and may be expanded onto the blog in due course – a full blog post requires a day at my desk, and I am not getting many of those at the moment. This is no cause for complaint – talks to lawyers and meetings with sponsors are core activities – but it comes at a time when the eDiscovery / eDisclosure world is a constant stream of information worth capturing. The Google+ posts are a way of picking up and passing on things which I would otherwise miss.
Yesterday’s entries include a couple of references to an important speech on eDisclosure by Lord Justice Jackson, a pointer to a kCura webinar on computer assisted review and news of the SFO’s new hotline for whistleblowers who want to talk about fraud or bribery. The weekend’s entries covered a range of subjects from how general counsel measure (or more often do not measure) value and efficiency of efforts made on their behalf, a Singapore consultation paper on discovery reforms, a note about uniform data protection law in Europe, some live tweets from ZyLAB Universe 2011, and a cartoon about trying to sell war-winning solutions to people too busy fighting daily battles. There are also trailers for forthcoming articles about predictive coding case studies and for a webinar which I am recording this week with ZyLAB. I don’t know if harnessing Google’s own indexes made the difference, but there were 475 page views on the blog yesterday.
Last night I was one of the speakers at a meeting of the Franco British Lawyers Society at Pinsent Masons. The subject was the Bribery Act and, in my case, the eDiscovery implications which quickly shaded into suggestions about information governance. The other speakers were Barry Vitou of Pinsent Masons, Jean-Francois Denis of Gide and Hervé Chacornac of Siemens – good company to be in on a subject which crosses borders as the Bribery Act does.
Now it is back to London again for the rest of the day. This near-continuous run of away matches ends soon.
